CHNC challenge 147: peace

Don't the weeks go by quickly? Here we are again at Saturday and time for CHNC challenge 147, which, this week is all about 'peace' - please click on the link to see what it's about and, hopefully, join in with your own Christmas cards the depict 'peace'.

One of today's sponsors is CAS-ual Fridays and they generously supplied me with a set of stamps called 'Christmas Carols' - you can see them here - some of which I've used on my card, as well as a dove stamp I already had.

I'm annoyed with myself because I made this card a while ago in readiness for this challenge and didn't record what papers these were and now I can't remember and can't find the original pad they came from. I think they are Kaisercraft 'turtle dove'. but If anyone can help and tell me what they actually are, I'll be delighted. They are beautiful papers - as you can see the one used inside the gatefold is gold foiled. I heat embossed all of the images I used with detail gold powder.

The paperclips are only there to hold the card closed for the photo.
