    I like everything about this card! I especially like that it covers the whole front of the card. I usually only put words inside. I like how you added the holly leaves.

    Your card design literally took my breath away! And just when I thought I was done with Christmas cards, too! I’m going to have to get started on next year’s cards, now, huh? Many thanks for such a beautiful card.
