Thanks for all the wonderful comments on this image. This is my actual Christmas card. I made it before I even new there was a challenge, luckily I had shot it that day and then looked on DPC to catch up after a few weeks absence and saw the Christmas card challenge. I just resized it and entered it. I didn't even look at the resized photo very closely or I would have noticed the lettering had gotten rasterized. I didn't notice until after the challenge started. I've never had this happen before with my text so I don't know what I did wrong. I messed around a bit with it to see if adding the text after I resized it would help but it didn't seem to make a difference. Any suggestions?

The rasterized text may have cost you a few points, but who cares when you have such a wonderful family. This high-key style works so well with your daughters. I wish you all the happiest and merriest Christmas ever! And congrats on the ribbon, of course.
