Peace On Earth

Good morning!  OK, so I shouldn't even be here at the computer since my Christmas cards aren't done and neither is my decorating!  This lingering cold has really sapped my energy and now DH has it, too, so neither one of us accomplished much yesterday.  I have a quick post today to share the card I made for the Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful Challenge - The Beauty of Winter - to create a holiday or winter-themed project.

Here is my card:

It was so hard to get a good photo of my card with all the embossing and metal and the mirror card stock!  This is the best one of over twenty I took!  I used another of the gorgeous stamp sets I won last month.  I purposely kept the design very simple so this wonderful image would be the main focus of the card.  It is from Flourishes The First Noel set.  I stamped it with Versamark onto a metal sheet in Brrr Blue (from Add A Little Dazzle) and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.  I matted the image with a piece of silver mirror card stock and popped it up on a base of GKD heavy white white.  The sentiment, also from The First Noel, was also heat embossed with silver.  A single rhinestone on the star finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope to see you again soon!
