Love that fun idea to frame the "25" as your main image ... what wonderful colors too ... thanks for joining our jingle belle journey.

Stella said...

pink ans brown are one of my favorite color schemes. It has a sort of powdered soft and elegant look. I love those 'retro-style" numbers. They go so well withthe rest of the card. A lovely take on the challenge; your car d is gorgeous!

And thank you for your sweet words; you made me blush :)
