  1. This is an awesome card! Love the layout and the color! Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo are my favs and I recently saw the purple (Razzleberry??) in person and fell in love with it. I'm not a purple person, but I flipped over that color. It reminds me of a grape juice popsicle, that rich reddish grape blackberryish color. Lovely!

  2. Carol, I love, love, love these samples you have posted. Remember how I said I didn't like the Circle Circus set? Well, I have completely changed my mind now. Guess I will have to get me that set after all!! And the new colors - WOW!!!
