Hetty these are wonderful cards - black and white is always so dramatic, and to see Michael's stamps used like this is stunning - they lend themselves to black and white.

Very beautiful cards, Hetty!
I like the lilies in the background of the second card, but the 3rd one with the Cloisonné Accents is my favourite.
