Oh, what a gorgeous Christmas card! A really lovely traditional snowman so beautifully painted to match the papers (I think I just bought these this weekend :D). Just love your floral element with the pine cones and frosted berries. The wooden Merry Christmas finishes your card off perfectly. Love it! Debra x
