  4. This is quite some project Donalda. I love the way your charm echoes her parasol shape on the first, the way you used several circular elements on the second echoing her fan, the glorious red rose in her hand on the third & the stunning pearly brads with Regency - so fitting.
    Your use of browns with the blues is lovely & the touches of green & yellow really help to make the blues glow too.
    Hope you've had a lovely time with your family.
