Peace On Earth

 This is my Design Team entry for The Holly and the Ivy Christmas Challenge.  This is an image from Power Poppy.  The first time I colored it I ended up tossing it.  I like the coloring on this one, but am not happy with the holly.  Once it was glued down there was no changing it.  I'll live with it.  I have been wanting to do something with kraft paper.  This just has a touch of it.  I absolutely love the ribbon.  The image was colored with Copic markers.  Glitter was added to the snow.

My husband and I make such a good card making team.  Whenever I am stuck he comes up with the ideas.  I wasn't sure what to put inside this card.  He suggested putting the song lyrics inside.  I hadn't even thought of doing that, but I loved the idea.  Thank you, dearest.

Oh Diane, I love this card! Your coloring on the image is beautiful and the glitter is a wonderful touch. I am sorry you don't like the holly, I think it frames it beautifully opposite the bow. Hubbies are good like that, mine is also such an inspiration.
Hugs Monica

Hi, Diane! Sorry you had to recolor this beautiful image, but I'm glad you shared this edition of your gorgeously designed card! WOWOW! Completely breathtaking, and so perfect with the interior sentiment - a peaceful home often leads to peace elsewhere. It's lovely, and yes, your holly is lovely, too! We are so hard on ourselves, some times, but you have no reason to be with this beauty! Thank you for uploading your pretty project to Christmas at the Sweet Stampin’ Challenge so I could come visit. Hope to see more of your pretty submissions in the future. Please check back to see if you are a selected DT favorite!
Warm Smiles,
