What a wonderful card, Eulanda! Your coloring is fabby and all your flowers are gorgeous! Good job and I think your SIL will absolutely love it...

What a cool card! No it does not look Halloweenie at all. If your SIL does not like it then she needs her head examined - and yes, it has enough flowers for sure! Love it!!

I really like it. I don't use black and really bright colors much, but you give me courage to move outside my self-imposed block. Thanks.

I don't see Halloween at all hun ... i see a truly gorgeous card, It shows how versatile you are in your crafting that you aren't afraid to use colours that some people associate with certain times of the year... I use pink and reds all year round but it doesn't mean that i am making valentines cards... :)
your work is stunning...
