Amber, this card is stunning! The colors are so regal and perfect, especially for this glorious scene. The touches of sparkle bring out the beauty even more. Your details are always incredible... the blue button and crinkle ribbon are the perfect accents. Beautiful job! :o)

Hugs and blessings! :o)

I LOVE this card and this cartridge. I made a shaped card out of the wiseman cut that I loved. And I also had one similar to this designed in my Gypsy but didn't cut it. I definitely need too. I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out! This is the real reason for Christmas and I just think it is PERFECT. Hugs- Glora

Kate said...

I love this image. I won Inspired Heart a couple of months ago and was thrilled for this image alone! What a fabulous sentiment you've added with it - and the glittered trim is such a lovely touch.
I'm glad you've had such a wonderful time with Celebrate the Occasion.
