"Let there be peace on earth...

and let it begin with me"... On this solemn anniversary, I wanted to share that prayer as we remember what happened 10 years ago. I can remember hearing the news just as clearly as if it was yesterday, as I am sure most of you can to. This card seemed appropriate to post today. I am playing along with the challenges at Crop Stop to use Spellbinders dies (lacey circle and circle); Digi Doodles Shop's Best to use circles; and Freshly Brewed Challenges to use something new (the stamp from Darcies is new).

I love this tan subtle dp with snowflakes. I stamped the dove peace stamp (in different languages from Darcies) and cut it out with my circle die from Spellbinder and framed with the black lacey circle also cut out with a Spellbinder die. The same dp was used in the background and I punched the edges and added some pearls to complete this CAS card.

Stamping smiles, Karen
