Peace on Earth

Just a little Christmas card to share with you today, and one I made for a couple of festive challenges.  Jingle Belles want to see Peaceful creations and I remembered I had an old stamp that would be perfect .. .. and Winter Wonderland don't want to see any red or green, so I've avoided those colours and stayed with a monochrome white/grey blue theme which is what the ABC challenge are looking for with the letter 'M'.

My card is all Marianne dies, starting with the big candle die - quite an old one but new to me.  After I cut it out and embossed with the blue-grey chalk ink, I went over the candle drips with a crystal Wacco pearl pen which has given a shimmer look with a hint of pink in certain light! You can see that in the centre of the poinsettias it's just a sort of white, so it must be the ink that's giving the shimmer - nice though!

Here is the card:

I've embossed a piece of paper with Swiss Dots then added the embossed faux stitching around the edge, highlighting with the chalk in.  Then there's the 4 corners, text stamped onto the banner, mini poinsettias and the ivy sprays - job done!

So these are the Marianne Design dies I used for this little card:
embossed faux stitches with LR0161
corners from set LR0285
candle from set LR0243
text stamped onto banner from COL1324
mini poinsettias from LR0142
ivy sprays from LR0206

All being well I'm going to see a crafty friend tomorrow so will be back with my next card on Thursday - see you then!
