OCC Sketch Challenge

Happy Sunday All!!

Here is my card for yesterday's Our Creative Corner sketch challenge. I really like this Stampin' Up "A Wish for Peace" stamp set and it seems every time I use it I ink it up in green ... what's up with that??? I bet it would be beautiful in gold too ... have to try that!! Anyways ... what do you think??

This card is A6 in size and the base card is white. I have used duplex hunter green/ivory cs for my matting base. The designer paper is by Making Memories (snowflake) and as it is reversable, I have used the polka dotted side as a 3rd matting on my main image. I have used diamond Stickles to add a little sparkle of "snow" as well as shimmer to the tree. (see closeup) The main image and the peace dove are popped up using dimensional tape. The ink I used is Versafine Olympia Green and after distressing the main image, I sponged the edges with the same ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog ... hope you are having a wonderful, restful weekend!! I just finished my cranberry relish for Thursday now I have to go get my pie dough prepared and refrigerated. Afterall, there is stamping to be done in amongst the Thanksgiving stuff, LOL!!
