Peace On Earth

Hi there and welcome back,

I know we are all busy. Hope you have a few minutes to take a breather and enjoy just one more Christmas card. Like you, I am in the midst of other things but I wanted to share this card with you since it's getting to be that time!! You know, time for Santa. Christmas Eve, I will be busy getting last minute things done and then I will be with family and friends celebrating.

Here is a card that I put together using some odds and ends that were laying on my work table.

Hope you are inspired to use what you have just lying around. 
It's amazing what the end result can be.

Stamps:  Stampendous - Snow Swirl, Stampabilities - Peace on Earth (Both stamps are really old)
Paper/Card Stock
: Red CS, Cream CS
Ink: VersaMark
Dies/Punches Used: Martha Stewart punch - Garden Trellis Deep Edge
Gold embossing powder
