As always, a feast for the eyes! Your details are always a treat to see close up. Those beads under the sleigh, the hinges (must get that die!), the watch faces, the distressed layer under the main image all combine to make a stunning card. Wait, this is more than a card, it's a decoration, hopefully to be displayed year after year! Wishing you a very merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
