Peace

When I first saw the inspiration board for the Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights challenge, I thought of aqua Bold Blossoms. However, the black & white photo with snow caught my attention last night & I ended up with a Christmas card I really like.
Heidi Swapp White Art Screen Ink was spread through the SSS Falling Snow stencil on a die cut circle which was then inlaid into a square of SSS Fog cardstock.  The EH Stag die was cut from black cardstock, brushed with Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen & covered with Diamond Glaze.  
I tied on a little scrap of sheer gray ribbon before attaching it to the card front.  The word die cut is from Penny Black & is also covered with Diamond Glaze, but no sparkle.  I'm also entering Christmas Card Challenges, HLS Christmas, HLS Anything Goes with Dies,  SSS Wednesday & Rudolph Days.
