Merry Monday......Peace


Happy Tuesday, Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the Merry Monday  sketch this week.


When I saw the sketch I knew right away what I wanted to do, I pulled out another Papertrey purchase, the Wonderful Words Holiday Die and some of my favorite, at the moment, Stampin Up silver glimmer paper.
I pulled off a bit of the backing of the paper to be able to die cut the "Peace"
I love the look of this glimmer paper with Night of Navy card stock, they are so made to go together.

The base of my card is Night of navy and I followed that with some white card stock that I embossed with the  petals a plenty EF (I think that is the name).


  
The flags are made with the glimmer paper and night of navy and are mounted directly to the embossed white.
The center panel is white and navy and I embossed that piece with a music EF.
I then glued the "Peace" onto the panel and die cut a couple of snowflakes from the retired Northern Flurries die strip. I added them to the corner of the panel and put a silver pearl in the center.
This whole panel was mounted to the base with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by today.
