Peace on Earth

I love the Stampendous nativity stamp & wanted to use it for a nurse I worked with last year.  We both changed jobs within the company & I really miss her. The nativity & sentiment (also Stampendous) were black embossed.  Then I spritzed with several Tattered Angels mists. Instead of a shaker, I just glued some Stampendous Shaved Ice along the bottom before adding the black frame made from Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangles.  I spritzed the frame with the Iridescent Gold TA to soften it a bit & added a gold gem to the star.  I'm entering the challenges at Stampendous & SSS Monday.  Thank you so much for taking time to visit my blog.
