Hello, Barbara,
this pine branch is lovely and just what I need! The use of this die, the lace and the embossed snowflakes give this card a real Christmas atmosphere and make me think of those cold Christmas days in which you are in your warm home with your family cooking a delicious meal, but it is snowing outside and everything is pure, silent and magic.
