Peace LOVE & Joy

I finally got myself together enough to make a card for a challenge and get it posted before the deadline:)  This is for the current retrosketches #36 which is from an awesome card that Suzanne posted back in September.

I just loved Suzanne's card and layout and had to play along.  I decided to make a  holiday card in non-traditional colors using some patterned paper that I got for free at CHA years ago.  The ladies at the KaiserCraft booth were just handing out handfuls of 6x6 paper packs by the end of the day.  I still have a ton left.

Since I loved what Suzanne did with her scalloped panel, I used Papertrey's Edgers #3 die to cut the colorful panel.  The little bow and three circles are cut out of some glittery silver card stock from Michael's.  

Hope your week is off to a great start!


Stamps:  Bells & Boughs (PTI)
Paper:  KaiserCraft Lush Collection, silver glittery paper (recollections)
Ink:  black, vintage Cream (PTI)
Other: Edgers #3 die, bow die (PTI), silver twine, hole punch

Love your take on the sketch, and your idea of using non traditional colors. I got shivers up my spine when you spoke about all the free 6x6 pads.
