  1. Great way to upcycle that tag. Wonderfully done!

  2. What an elegant, classic card, Becca - love your up-cycled tag!! That's beautiful centre piece.

  3. Such a handsome card with the wisemen! Wonderful design with them accenting the focal sentiment. The blues with the silver/golds is perfect as is the literary reference. So happy you shared with us at Path of Positivity! ~Katirna
