Peace on Earth





Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!!!


Today's card share is made with this week's color challenge on Stacey's Stamping Stage and The Paper Players Christmas Themed Challenge.

This week's Curtain Call colors are Real Red, Basic Gray, Always Artichoke and Whisper White. The Paper Players theme was an easy one this week, any Christmas themed item.


The base of my card is made with the Basic Gray card stock. The main image and sentiment comes from the Level 2 Hostess Set in the Holiday Mini called "Peaceful Season".

I stamped the holly leaves and berries with Always Artichoke ink and colored the berries with my Real Red Marker. I then used my Basic Gray ink Pad for the Sentiment. It looks totally black but I swear I used Basic Gray ink! I added a bit of crystal effects to the berries. I layered this piece up with some real red scallops along the bottom, three rows actually and I pierced the scallops with my piercing tool and mat pack. I added a strip of basic gray and then more real red across the top. I used some always artichoke seam binding ribbon across the card and to make the bow. I used a real red button with some twine threaded through the button holes.





I love this color combo that Stacey picked this week! Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
