  11. Beautiful. Love the image and the design! Looks wonderful
    I sure hear you on the flatter cards for this year. SOme of mine had to be sent as small parcel rate! Those were a fortune to mail! Phew!

    You are going to see lots of flatter cards on my blog this year. I will save the thicker width styles for those that are hand delivered.
