It fascinates me how you can twist the look of a card just by changing the colour. If this design had been made in vibrant greens and say electric blue or neon orange it would have looked horribly contemporary. I just love the soft gently vintage look, I find it so restful and professional looking. Probably no sane reason for that, just personal taste but hey ho! Not long till the real lily of the valley appear in my garden – yay!
