    Nice, Lizzie! A really dynamic video. I like your face-on introduction, and the new “tip” overlays. (I like them on the release card samples, too.) Now to see if I can find some time to play along.

    This is just gorgeous! I have Botanical Bounty lying on my desk to play with tonight, so mine will likely be a very close case of yours. Thanks for sharing the blending process on the flowers. Looking forward to trying it all.
