The 12th day of Christmas!!

Well, here it is the last of Sandie's 12 Days of Christmas challenges!


This was an inspiration challenge, the photo is on Sandie's blog . I chose to use the snow, tree and the colours in the photo.....oh, and the word 'Peace' had to also be on the card somewhere.
I used my other new Nestabilities dies, Curved rectangles, to cut my card layers for this one. The tree stamp is from a clear Christmas set by Fiskars - stamped with Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy and clear embossed, coloured the fairy lights with a red Marvy Marker, coloured the star with a silver gel pen...highlighted the fairy lights and star with some Dimensional Magic. Sponged around the tree with white SU craft ink. Popped the tree layer on dimensional dots. Stamped 'Peace' and cut out with a circle punch, edged the circle with Crystalline Kindy Glitz and popped up on dimensional dots. Added some white organza ribbon under the tree layer.

Thanks to everyone for all your wonderful comments on my 12 days of Christmas cards and thanks Sandie for some great challenges! Make sure you all go visit Sandie's blog to see all the other challenge cards there too!
