Wonderful card! Now you only need a little correction there. You have to use our challenge post link http://natalduranteoanotodo.blogspot.com.br/2013/09/desafio-032013-use-furadores-ou-die.html where you mention the Christmas Inspirations challenges.
Thanks for joining us at Christmas Inspirations challenges. I hope you will play again soon.
