A simple , no fuss card, used Carole’s gimp tube, and waved it. Text slightly rotated, after adding text on a curve. I replaced the border, with one of my own. Extracted the bird, placed it on a plain background, added snowflakes, and snow, to finish I added some noise to the border, and the background paper.
I uploaded my first page yesterday in the gallery, in the appropriate section. I assumed it would be automatically added to the forum, it would seem not.
There isn’t anything to add to Michele’s comment
