Oh so lovely, mother dear! That doily stamp reminds me of the doily you had on the living room table for years! And what a brilliant take on the White Space challenge! I love your colors and that border punch is FAB!! (May have to put that in my next SU! order!) ;) Thanks for playing in the 365 Cards challenge again and I can't wait to see what you do with next week's challenge!
