    The wreath stamp is very nice, but what makes it amazingly beautiful is the talent you have for coloring it. That is what it brings in the WOW factor. I think a tutorial on bringing out the "best" in this wreath would be welcomed by many. Great stamp!

    Hello, please excuse my choice of words but to say it mildy I was "gobsmacked" when I saw what you had done with the wreath. It leapt out of the page at me. In the words of one of our Strictly Come Dancing judges (Dancing with the Stars in the US) "Fab-u-lous"
