I love this image and received a card last Christmas with this image on it and in a very similar layout, and because I so liked the card I am casing it. My card is a little different but still  very similar:0). Thanks Dawn and Sam ( Dawn Frost was the designer and Sam  (her son's girlfriend  who gave us the card) was the one who made it.  I love my version too and it was so easy to put together,
