Two cards at once this week Nicky... and you have displayed both flags, superb!
The first on is a very pretty stamp and I like how you have added the pearls to the flower centres.
It's a pity that the DST shows through the organza ribbon on the second one... I usually just attach it behind with a little snail tape. You can always cover it with another piece of paper so that it doesn't show inside.
It's a pretty design, maybe a white oval on the blue Nestie under the button would just lighten it slightly.
They both look super however!
Thanks so much

Lovely cards Nicky.
I'd not have used tape under the organza, have to say. If it;s secured under that center nestie it would hold well enough
Lovely cards, nevertheless
Good to see you as always
Thanks so much
