LOVE THIS FLOWER PETAL SHAPE! Every card is a beautiful floral display that brings such creative joy! That we can do this ourselves is wonderful and so satisfying. I continue to so appreciate your decision to separate the petal dies according to size...so much easier to use than your previous single die sheet. I can easily choose the size most appropriate for my project. Looking forward to getting this die set! Merry early Christmas to me!
