Christmas Design 2

What does this scene remind you of?  Hopefully your answer is The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis!  It happens to be probably my very favorite book ever.  My dad read the whole series to me as a child and I fondly remember watching the Wonder Works (made by the BBC)  movies of these books on PBS.  These movies usually aired around Christmas time and Christmas itself is definitely featured in the book as well.  So, at least to me, it seems an appropriate theme for a Christmas card.  In the book, when the character Lucy Pevinsie first enters Narnia through the wardrobe, she finds a forest in winter with a lamppost in the middle of it.  So here is my version of what she saw.  For the inside, I used the quote "Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful." -Norman Vincent Peale.
Also, I'm quite excited for the new version of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader that comes out today!
