Your cards always combine so many pretty elements to create the 'whole''s a joy to look around & see how well each item blends with everything else. This is indeed a delightful image, and you colored it so beautifully. I enlarged the photos and your 'snow' embossing really gleamed just like the real stuff when the sun hits it. I am especially loving the lace & brilliant poinsettia too! TFS & Hugs. Hope your weather is good. We in the South are safe from the ice, but our Midwestern & Northern states are being hammered with ice and low temps.
