Hi, Giovana! It's always so interesting when cards are made out of other shapes (rather than traditional A2 rectangles, you know?) So thanks for shaking it up for us, and using such 'loud' colors in a very 'soft' way!!!

This is so beautiful, Giovana. The image is superb, and your coloring perfect. I love how you've used the distress inks around the edges - it highlights the flower image even further.
