A Magical Land

Good morning to all of you!    I am so excited.  I have just been invited to serve on the fabulous  Creative Team for  Nicecrane Designs.  I have always been impressed by the images designed by Ignacio Molina.  His work is gorgeous!  His blog can be found HERE.   This is the first card I created as a new Creative Team member for Nicecrane Designs.   His wonderful images and graphically designed background images can be found at  Nicecrane Designs.   Stop by and check out all his images!  You will be in for a treat!

These gorgeous images for his Adorable Alice series can be purchased at Nicecrane Designs.   You may also enjoy Ignacio's wonderful blog that can be found at  Nicecrane Designs Blog.
