Melanie I love this set, have not used it as of yet but getting ready to start my holiday cards. I too could not pick a favorite, I like all three. I love the creative way you trimmed the raffia and the coloring in of the rafis and leaves. I love all of your ideas. have not seen one of your ideas that I do not like.

God Bless
