Peace on Earth

Hello my friends,

I haven't had much time this weekend to craft but I just had a little browse around blog land and saw a few challenges that inspired me to make this card:


First off the 'green and gold' challenge at Less is More immediately made me think of Christmas. This led me to look up this week's Muse: Christmas Visions challenge. Kimberly is the Muse this week and her gold embossed card gave me the idea for my card. I went with a wreath instead of tress but did hunt out a sentiment that was the same. I felt the sentiment needed a little extra so added a gold embossed holly.

It was hard to keep it all gold and green but that was the challenge at Less is More so challenged I was!

I will also enter this into the 'Holly' challenge at Happy Little Stamper Christmas Challenge

I will also enter into the 'spectacular embossing' challenge at AAA cards
