Well, I am glad to say that my cards for this year are finally complete and on their way to friends and family.
I am so pleased with how they came out. It all fell right into place. What isnt so good though, is how they photographed. They are so much prettier in real life. I couldnt seem to get the embossed silver image to show up well. it always had a glare no matter which way I took the photo from.
