Well, this is a very sweet card! I love the sentiment you used and the ribbon detail on the side is really cool! I alsways end up just wrapping my ribbon around the card, but this is really cool. Great colors,too! I was never a fan of orange - didn't hate it..just didn't use it. The Orange Zest, though, is realy bright and pretty!
