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! 

Here's a fun inspiration board we've created to help get you started ...

Gosh, I haven't used this Poppystamps 'Stitched Poinsettia Trio' die set in a long time and it worked perfectly for today's card.  I die cut from white card stock then watercolored with an artist brush, water and Tombow markers.  I've used Heartfelt Creations Green Prill for the centers.

 I've used an OLD Cheery Lynn Designs 'Holly Flourish'  (B148) for the greenery and my sentiment is from a fun Technique Tuesday stamp set (#SS125) called Inside Out: 12 Cookies.
