This is so perfectly retro, Sheila! I love the colors and images and that pop of blue bow is perfect!

LOVE THIS!!! The design and colors are magnificent and how adorable is that ribbon/jingle bell treatment! WELL DONE once again and of course thanks for your wonderful way of teaching us more about doing digital creations. You are so clever!! Hugs!

One of the things I always love about your creations is that the colour match is always spot on and as it always matches I know this is no accident. I love how the blue bow picks up the blue of the ornament and the pin with the bell is so cute. The reds are also a perfect match. This is such a cute retro card Sheila, I love it.
