Peace on Earth for Merry Monday #97 & Freshly Made Sketches #125





ETA:  My card got Honorable Mention at Merry Monday.


I used Freshly Made Sketches #125 for my layout.
 
 
This is my card for the Merry Monday #97 Christmas card challenge.  I used X-Press It Blending Card (white) and SU Brushed Silver and Coastal Cabana CS and DSP.  The image is a Hero Arts stamp and the sentiment is from SU Peaceful Seasons.  Both are stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with Ranger Silver Embossing Powder.  I did some paper-piercing around the sentiment.  The ornament was cut out with SU Holiday Ornaments Framelits and mounted with foam dimensionals.  The silver ribbon is from SU.
 
It was hard to get a good photo of the silver embossing. It looks so much prettier in person.  Here is a different angle that shows the embossing better.

 
Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I hope you have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
