Peace on Earth Christmas

Hi Everyone - I'm finally getting to my Christmas Cards and this one is for 3 special challenges! The first is for this week's Queen - Angella Crockett. Angie has an amazing talent for creating unique and beautiful cards - what a wonderful time I had visiting her gallery!! I quickly fell in love with this beauty: { Angella’s AMAZING Bleached Dahlia Happy Day Card }

Her card is breathtaking!! And seeing all her wonderful ODBD creations inspired me to check out the ODBD Challengs for that week, and then to choose this wonderful ODBD Poinsettia Collage Image. Changes were with colors, number of layers and flourish.

This card is also for Our Daily Bread Designs Shining Light Challenge #129 - To make a Winter White creation. I love white cards so this was a fun challenge for me!!{ODBDSLC129 Winter White Challenge Link}.

To make this card I stamped the Poinsettia image in Chocolate Chip Craft Ink and clear embossed it on SU! Naturals Vanilla cardstock. I then bleached inside the flower petals using a small paint brush, then whitened and shaded the areas even more using Prismacolor pencils. The die-cut Flourish is from Memory Box, and the flower center is made using the Pine Die Cut from Cheery Lynn Designs.  Before assembling I outlined everything using an 18K Gold Leaf pen.  I love this ODBD image so much I really wanted to keep the card as 'CAS' as possible........ So I kept it to two layers with minimal embellishments.

Hugs & Blessings Everyone!
