Hi Rach
love your card, love the colours that you have used.
As for you having doubts about being good enough for the job, I can't believe that you could even think that, Rach your work is an inspiration to many many crafter's, your card's/other craft item's are out of this world, and most of us crafter's can only dream of ONE DAY being HALF as good as you.
