  5. Liebe Becca,
    Super, dass Du dieses tolle Werk bei uns Nachteulen zeigst. Ganz in blau eine Weihnachtskarte zu gestalten ist besonders, da die typischen Weihnachtsfarben doch rot und grün sind. Aber Deine Karte gefällt mit besonders gut. Jetzt hoffe ich, dass Du mit diesem Werk gewinnen wirst.
    Liebe Grüße, Flo
