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 ...

 Today, my eye was drawn to the Ice Skate image in the lower right corner of our mood board.  I knew I had an older die from Marianne Designs (LR0247) Ice Skates that would work perfectly.  

My background plaid paper is from the Paper Studio 'Four Seasons 3' paper pack and the Tutti die cut panel was cut from a 6x6 panel of the Mintay 'Berrylicious' paper pack.

For my greenery I used the Sue Wilson 'Woodland Collection - Pine Cones & Greenery' die set #CED3103 ... using the largest greenery die.  I've added 'berries' by using 'Rudolph Red' Pops of Color from

 PLEASE be sure to pop over to THE BLOG and check out the amazing designs our design team has created for your inspiration.  What a group of talented ladies!!  Then come join in the fun!!  

Challenges to share in:

  Have a great day!

As always ... thanks again for stopping by!
