  3. Wow, that's so pretty.

  4. That is so COOL! What a fabulous card Maarit. I love the crackle effect finish, it ages the image to perfection and the distressed edges are perfect for this card. Love it! Hugs, Wends x

  5. Such a fabulous card, Maarit! The crackled background is the perfect canvas for your flowers and bees which, by the way, are so realistic! Stunning and incredibly creative! Your previous card is also incredible; I think you should share it at TIME OUT where the current challenge is grunge. I think you have a gallery-perfect creation with what you've done. Here's the link (and look at me...'marketing' your talent, but..a card this pretty needs as wide an audience as possible!):

  6. This is such a great piece of work Maarit - I do love how you have made this and have decoupaged some of the little bits. Thank you so much for entering the Crafty Calendar (Things with Wings) challenge this month, lots of luck to you.

    Hugs Sue Pxxx DT

  7. Absolutely stunning, Maarit. What I would call a peaceful card - the yellow has warmth and softness and the crackle effect paper tones in beautifully. Definitely something to frame and keep forever! Have a lovely weekend xx

  8. Love this card. Love the way you have stamped over the design paper and then cut out the extra flowers and little bee and layered them up . Hugs Mrs A.

  9. Ooh this is gorgeous Maarit… love the background paper and the beautiful stamp… a card filled with sunshine! :-)

  12. Love that crackled background, the whole card is gorgeous, such a wonderful mellow effect.

  13. What a beautiful card Maarit! I am in love with the background paper, it is perfect for your stamped images. And I just love that you re-stamped some of the images and cut them out to place on top of the base. Very beautiful and vintage looking and I think that is why I'm in love with this card! Hugs, Brenda
