Well, Aragorn1014 asked me nicely if I could make an eCard to use as a banner in the Secret Santa in July that she and Ryuchu are running. I hope this is good enough! I wanted to have a card that had a combined winter/summer theme, so I used this image as it has a flower wreath rather than an evergreen one that is commonly seen around Christmastime.
I chose a phrase that I though sounded suitably Christmas themed. I think it is good to give year round. I don't mean just giving gifts, or presents, but more being generous, giving time, making a difference to those you love. Of course, presents are nice too ^^
I added in the white background, as the one in the scan is too dark for a cheerful card. I played with the curves and saturation, then I added a bokeh overlay, but it isn't too clear.
Thanks for viewing ^^
If you are interested in joining the Secret Santa, I believe that there is still time! It is a fanart SS, so no cards/walls are allowed.
