Peace on Earth

Hi everyone, just a really quick post, I actually wasn't sure if I was going to be able to finish this card today, but luckily I did. Image was already colored and fussy cut yesterday, so I just created my background, and added the image to the card. I wanted to keep it simpler, but after it was finished, I thought it needed some machine sewing. 


In case you are wondering, why I am sharing a Christmas card - this month at Whimsy Stamps we're not having a regular release, instead we are having a Christmas in July month, sharing Christmas cards all month long using our favorite Whimsy Christmas stamps. Be sure to follow the Whimsy blog and DT members if you don't want to miss all the gorgeous Christmas creations by the DT. 


You can find the Whimsy products here:

For inks I used distress inks and copics for coloring.
