Peace on Earth




Happy Thursday!! I have a simple card to share with you today. And I had a really hard time photographing it because the cardstock is a shimmery blue by PTI. If you click on the photo, you'll be able to see the details a bit better.

Well, I made this card for two challenges: the Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz, which was to be a winter or Christmas card, and the CCEE Stampers challenge which was to include two diecuts, or two punches. I used two layers of the Labels 4 die by Spellbinders. I also added a punched border, but that is just a little extra... :)

I had fun combining a few Waltzingmouse sets for this card: Seasonal Remedies, Very Vintage Christmas (itty bitty snowflakes), Flourishes ~ Scallops and Dots

All were embossed with white ep.

Well, that's it for today. Thanks for visiting.
Happy stamping my friends!! :)

Sooooo LOVELY, Tosh! I love that color blue with the Peace sentiment, just perfection. Your flourishes and the lattice detail finish it off perfectly. I was racing around this morning, yet suddenly feel calmer, hee! Awesome creation for the waltz!
