Peace, Joy & Love

Hello all,

I just wanted to show you this card I made on Friday for Selma's challenge on Stamp TV.
Selma showed a picture and the challenge was to use this as the inspiration for a card.
OK so here's the picture.........what do you think? I've never tried one of these challenges before but I enjoyed it, it's good to have a change from sketch and colour challenges.
I used a stamp from the GKD Holiday Cheer set, which I stamped in Kiwi Kiss then embossed part of the image in white to look like snow covered branches.
The dp is from Basic Grey Figgy Pudding and sits on some soft blue card. The top of this card was embossed with Swiss dots and I used EK Success scalloped border punch to shape both of these cards. The image is stamped on GKD PL layering weight and sits on some Eskimo Kisses dp. I added the pure white satin ribbon and a snowflake charm with a couple of glittered snowflakes in both of the top corners to finish off.

Thanks for dropping by. Sorry this is a quick post ... I'm suffering with my back again! Not sure how to get comfortable at the moment and am dosing myself up with meds to try and get some relief.

I'll be back a.s.a.p with more cards until then...........
