Beautiful card!! A true classic and I love the raspberry ornament!! Great color! TFS!

Love the color combos. Great to see how to put colors together. Pretty card.

Your card is beauiful! I LOVE the way the pine needles make it look so authentic. The colors are amazing and not attaching the top of the hook is pure genius. TFS

Love this beautiful card. The inlaid method looks great with this and I love how the pine needles die was used. Very cool.

How come I have the older Memory Box ornament die and never thought to add pine branches to it? Why didn't I think of anything like this..instead I let the die sit and sit and sit and it may even be rusty by now. I love this card. I've saved it to my desktop with the hopes it will inspire me to USE my pretty MB ornament. Now I just need the beautiful pine branches. This is just gorgeous. I love this card.

What a beautiful card. Love the pine needles behind the ornament. Gorgeous color on the ornament, also.

I love the way you used the pine die, lovely xxx

Another fabulous creation. You always amaze me with your simplicity that looks elegant. Great job.
