Peace, Love, Joy

Couldn't wait to use my new Penny Black dies (love & joy, 51-021). My card is for the challenges at Merry MondayFreshly Made Sketches, CAS-ual Fridays and Curtain Call.

I used rows of the white embossed border stamp from Penny Black's holiday collage, 40-166, for the stripes requirement. Unfortunately, I wrote down the wrong time for the MM deadline, so too late. The words are die cut from brown cardstock, in case you can't tell.  The little hearts are punched, covered with red Stickles & popped up.  Not a classic Christmas card, but I think it works & is almost flat for mailing.
Thank you so much for taking time to visit my blog.
