  112. I love how the words on the front of the card are formed into a tree. I'm guessing the stamp does that, you didn't. I say that because I would love to have words form a tree like that. It's so cool! The red and green dots add just the right pop of something to the card and so does the twine. The background paper makes it look country like Dolly Parton. It's a beautiful card.
