Jingle Belles Rock #40 - Peace

This week's Jingle Belles challenge is Peach on Earth, wherein The Belles have asked us to incorporate a Peace Symbol or the word Peace into your design ... or create a card that evokes Peace for you (snow, forest, etc.). I chose to go with the word "peace" and I made this:

There is NO stamping on this card. I got the idea for the design/layout when I saw this sketch at the cardabilities blog:

Naturally, it's last week's sketch, but still, it's pretty much at the top of my pile of sketches, and still in my frontal lobe, too. I broke out my new Basic Grey nordic holiday 6x6 paper pack for the patterned papers (I may have to marry that green dotted piece - looooove it!) , the lace is from Webster's Pages (not from the massive Groupon stash, no no no, it's from some new stuff I bought at the LSS...), the letters are Thickers and they have glitter, the button is SU, and the round sticky things are from my stash - Pebbles, I think.

Here's a closer shot so maybe you can see some of the sparkle:

I'm pretty happy that those round glittery things sorta go with the Thickers. Actually, I'm pretty happy with the whole card! I came out exactly like I'd planned it in my head, and that almost never happens! (yay, me!)

Today is Sunday, and except for laundry and maybe a trip to the grocery, I have no plans except to get crafty. Hopefully I'll have something bloggable later today.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. love the way you rocked that sketch...I saw it last week and never got aroud to doing it...but looovvee yours!

  2. What an awesome sketch for scraps ... love the colors and patterns you combined ... so glad you found a little peace with us at jingle belles.

  3. Great card - lovely take on the sketch....Bet you end up repeating it with stamped words too.

  4. I really like your interpretation of the sketch. Lovely traditional colours on the pretty papers, and I like the sparkly letters in the word peace. It's lovely!

  5. I love the way you have used these designer papers - what a great idea.
    I popped by to say thank you for your kind comments on one of my cards. You asked if the card I'd used was an SU one - no it's just some green that was in my stash. I'm unlucky in that I don't know an SU demonstrator so I haven't bought any of their card etc up to now. Eeeek that's not good is it?
