Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge


Hello Friends and welcome back to my blog! 
SO happy you stopped by!

Today I have a card to share for the new challenge over on the PEACE ON EARTH CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE BLOG.  Of course the theme is Anything Christmas and we hope you'll come join in the fun!  But, if you're in need of a little inspiration help, check out the board provided ...


 WOW ... where do I even begin to tell you how I put this card together?? 
This challenge was truly a struggle for me as my brain is a traditional Christmas color lover and had a terrible time switching over to a NON-traditional colored Christmas card.    In fact, I did have another card original made & ready to share but I just did NOT like the card so removed it and started anew!

The card base is a beautiful OLD SU card stock called Pink Pirouette and I just love it's soft pink color.  I didn't want to use designer paper today so I simply embossed the card front with a snowflake embossing folder by Cuttlebug/ProvoCraft.

Now onto the wreath ... that is a combination of 2 different wreaths I have in my collection of dies then covered it with several cuts from the smaller branch in the Sue Wilson 'Woodland Collection' (CED 3103) Pine Cone & Greenery die set.

 The poinsettias were created using a very old Cheery Lynn Designs poinsettia die strip.  I did a little shaping and inking on the edge since they were cut from the same pink card stock.  Nuvo White Crystal drops were used for the poinsettia centers.

The greenery and little white sprigs were just bits & bobs I cut from a variety of different dies that I thought would work.  And finally, the sentiment is by Paper Rose (16877)
