oof! ok, not only do i ♥LOVE♥ the image and in fact the whole entire GORGEOUS vintage card you've made here, missus, but you've also made me realize what was missing from MINE: it needed some pixie dust crinkly seam binding of course!!! ...wonder if i can "retro-fit" that...? in the meantime, THANKS and WELL DONE, you! ♥
