We are so excited about Secret Garden. One look at this collection and you're instantly filled with joy! First up we have this stunning card by Alberto Juarez. This card is a true celebration of the story of Secret Garden. You can see how amazing those fussy cut flowers and birds look on the card's cover. They add fabulous detail and beauty. We love the many layers that this card has, giving it such superb depth. And of course that Graphic 45 Ornate Metal Key in the middle looks absolutely perfect! This is a great card for any occasion!
