So beautiful Nessy - the gold really sets it off!

WOW Nessy this is a great Christmas card, I do the your image and that wonderful snow, love your gold paper and pretty ribbon. I can see what you mean far too much work to be put in the rubbish after Christmas. When I was little Mum and Dad received Christmas cards from England and I always wondered why there was snow on cards and as it's summer here in New Zealand for Christmas now I know. Great card and thanks so much for sharing it with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
