Christmas Blessings

Hi Everyone, my card today is one I cased from HERE such a beautiful card by Karen. I loved the idea so went about it all in PS. I duplicated the sentiment and greyed them out a little and accentuated the other with red, I wanted to use a modern font, but after trying a few, felt this (BlackChancery) suited the image, I hope I am right.

Stickles red glitter for berries

Sharing a Green Woodpecker that stayed in the garden feeding for half an hour! We couldn't get over how deep he was digging. He hardly moved from the spot, so whatever was there he enjoyed it / them.
