Peace on earth

Karen P set the challenge for this fortnight for the Christmas card club and she asked us to use black and white and one other colour.

I make no apology that this card is very similar to the previous one that I made for my design card for the Glory of Christmas 32: bows. I just wanted to use another felt bird, this time a turquoise blue one. I used some black and white twine that I've had for some time, sticking a bow on the place where it joins. The stamped sentiment is once again the Personal Impressions stamp, this time inked with memento tuxedo black.

As for the previous card, apologies for the quality of the photo - always difficult to capture a white card.

  1. This is pretty Hazel - love the little dove on there. Graham was mumbling about my card (posted tomorrow because of my DT card) saying that he was picking up too much green and couldn't get the sparkle etc so he knows exactly what you are saying!
