I make my sister's Christmas cards each year. This is the card I am making her this year I think the combination of the large sentiment on the front works with that beautiful ribbon. All it needed to finish it was a strip of that pretty Joyous Noel paper. This is a card design you could recreate in a variety of papers and sentiments.
