How many designs does it take for us to finalize our Christmas Cards? Three

Round 1: The Smiths as characters in Wes Anderson's epic film The Grand Budapest Hotel. I loved it! Justin thought it was too esoteric. 

Round 2: I used hand-lettering and a bit of watercolor to make our card. It looked messy. I scrapped it.

Round 3: Our Final Winner for Christmas Cards 2016. I made the art on paper and then cleaned it in Illustrator. We opted for our traditional square, pearlized card. Phew!
