Peace


October-Release-Challenge

One more chance to win the Flourishes October release.  You have to make a Christmas card without red or green.  I knew immediately I wanted to use the Peace & Joy set--one of my all-time favorites!  I white embossed Peace & then sponged it with Distress Inks dusty concord & peacock feathers. Stickles is added & it's matted with a piece of textured white cardstock. The card front is randomly stamped (second generation) with both inks using the holly image from the set. Then I embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder & mounted the focal piece with foam tape.  
The final touch is provided with the narrow velvet ribbon I've been wanting to use & it was just right. I know you're busy so it means a lot to have you visit--thank you.
Edited to add: Also entering the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.
