Peace, Love & Joy
Hi everyone. I'm playing along again this week at Merry Monday - Challenge #210 - Use Peace, Joy and/or Love on your card. Isn't this a great challenge ... I fell in love with the inspiration photo (as you can tell from my card). :) It's basically a copy of the photo. Great challenge Bonnie!!
The girls at Merry Monday are taking a break for the summer months, so I wanted to join in as much as possible before they are on hiatus. Always good to build my Christmas card stash. :)
The square is cut from balsa wood and I "stained" it with diluted distress inks (Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy). Then I heat embossed the small sentiment and die-cut the large joy twice, layering it to create a thicker die-cut. I die-cut my pine sprigs, added a little bit of snow writer, and then glued them along the bottom, layering several on top of each other to create depth.
There's still a lots of time to play along, the challenge closes on Sunday at noon (PDT). Come join in the fun!
And thanks to all that stop by for a visit, and a special thanks to those that take the time to leave me messages.
