  16. Oh, Christmas Wish set looks like a great set. I just love your card. It must have been fun to make. And the tags, how pretty. After using them as a gift tag, it would be so nice to use as an ornament. We are planning a Dec 2011 wedding, and the damask back ground and the fancy word enclosure would be pretty for an ornament favor. Thanks for sharing.
