Sparkly Peace Christmas Card

I was out of town most of last week, but am back and finally had a chance to play with some new toys I bought recently. I saw this card on Pinterest recently (scroll down) and cased much of it. The "peace" die I used is from Essentials by Ellen and the "on earth" is from Raisin Boat. I applied versamark ink through the openings in Tim Holtz's stencil and added super sparkly glitter to the red berries, then the brown pinecones and finally the rest with a sparkly white. Some of the white went onto the berries and pinecones so they look like they have snow on them. IRL it is very sparkly because I just discovered new glittery embossing powders from Stampamania. They are called "The World's Greatest Embossing Powders" and I will agree they are the sparkliest I have ever seen. (Is that even a word?)

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Brown Sugar and Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.

Oh Karen, this is a gorgeous card! I love how the white and red pop on the black! I also love the vellum with the sentiments on it because it still allows for the beauty of the card to shine through. Hugs, Brenda

Absolutely gorgeous Karen. I am getting inspired and wish I could be making cards again, but I need to prepare for Thanksgiving. I got behind with hubby's health issues.

Oh my Karen, this is just soooo lovely and elegant. I love it.

Thanks for playing along with us at Brown Sugar this week. Good luck.
