peace on earth... the theme this fortnight at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ so we'd like to see holiday cards that include the word peace, OR the peace symbol, OR a scene that evokes peace for you. i combined the first option with the third:

vintage pc from my collection, scanned, scaled down slightly and printed on semi-gloss paper, then distressed a bit and inked at the edges; patterned paper: crate, k and co; white glitter cardstock: best creation; gold metallic cardstock: idea-ology; sentiment cut from a simple stories journal card; ribbon: may arts; pearl holly berries: eyelet outlet; poinsettia stamps, stamens, dies and shaping molds: heartfelt creations, via paper anthology; adhesives: elmer's brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine

i used a (scanned and reduced) vintage postcard for my peaceful scene and trimmed the word "peace" from a journaling circle in which the overall design didn't fit my vintage vibe at all, but the script word worked just fine! i'm still obsessed with heartfelt creations' dimensional flower system, so the sweet poinsettia clusters are making another appearance; this time in white and gold. if i had set out looking for flowers to specifically fit around the circle shape in the postcard without covering all of the holly, i don't think i could possibly have hoped to do better than this, lol! i partook of this week's awesome sketch saturday layout (week #529) though i rotated it ninety degrees counter clockwise.

be sure to check out stephanie's beautiful card and start planning your own peaceful masterpiece at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥!
