Peaceful Season

Isn't the script on this sentiment just lovely?  I really like the elegance of this card and hope you will too!

I used a Cuttlebug flurries embossing folder and rubbed one side of it with Brilliance Pearlescent Ice Blue ink, then placed a piece of Shimmery White paper inside and ran it through the Big Shot.

Peace on Earth was stamped in VersaMark and embossed with silver embossing powder.  The edges were sponged in Brilliance Pearlescent Ice Blue.  I mounted the rectangle to a piece of Bashful Blue and punched a dove from Brushed Silver paper.

The snowflakes were cut from the Northern Frost die strip in Brushed Silver and Bashful Blue.  Ice circle brads were added for some sparkle.

I adhered the snowy background to a piece of Bashful Blue and mounted it onto a solar white linen card.

The Stampabilities Joy, Love & Peace sentiment was stamped in VersaMark and embossed with silver embossing powder.  Snowflakes from SU's Serene Snowflakes were stamped in Bashful Blue and embossed with clear embossing powder.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Hello Donna
I will be taking this card to my next SU workshop to show it off. It is most definitely elegant and sitting on the dining room table to be enjoyed every time I go by.
Thank you my friend for sharing how this card was made.

It looks like a kind of porcelain made in the UK. Forgotten the name of it, though. Now that will bother me for hours.
