Peace on Earth for Merry Monday #78

 
My card is for this week's Merry Monday #78 challenge - to use a bird on your Christmas card.
 
 
For my card I used SU Peaceful Season (retired).  I used Versamark ink to stamp the dove on blue cardstock, embossed with white embossing powder and cut it out.  I also embossed the sentiment and earth ornament (from the same set) on a piece of Baha Breeze DSP from a retired pad.  I cut the Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight frame out twice and glued together to make it sturdier as I mounted it with foam tape for dimension.  The dove is also mounted with foam tape. I then added a mat of Whisper White CS and adhered to the Baha Breeze card base.
 
I am also linking my card to http://craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge2.blogspot.co.uk/ - always Christmas.
and 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - no red or green 
and Crafting Musketeers Challenge blog - October is Christmas theme.
 
Thanks for stopping by.  I really appeciate your comments.
 
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
