Peace Ornament for FMS 108

Its another glorious spring day - a warm 27 degrees and after a busy morning out and about it is time to get back to making Christmas cards. Today's card is inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

This is my first entry for one of their challenges so I hope I have captured the "Clean" look ok!! This is the third card - come back tomorrow to see the cards I thought might be a little too busy for this sketch :-)
The Ornament is from the Holiday Ornaments stamp set and  is cut out with the co-ordinating Framelits - and even easier this year with the addition of the Magnetic Platform to keep the dies in place!
The DSP is from the Winter Frost Specialty pack and the Peace is part of a stamp from the Calm Christmas set - inked with Versamark and embossed with Silver EP.  And I did still try to find some room for bling :-) - Some Rhinestones on the ornament and the lovely Silver Glimmer Paper!

Card Stock: Basic Slate, Pool Party, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer 
Designer Series Paper : Winter Frost Specialty
Stamps: Holiday Ornaments, Calm Christmas
Inks: Bermuda Bay, Versamark
Accessories: Big Shot, Holiday Ornaments Framelits, Silver embossing powder, Basic Rhinestones, Silver Ribbon, Fancy Fan ( I think that's its name, now retired) Border Punch 

Nothing like a spot of exercise on a nice sunny day!
After all it IS a lovely green paddock - especially after the Council took out again the trees that were planted just yesterday...and already watered :-) 

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. What a lovely Christmas card! The glimmer paper adds some lovely sparkle along with the rhinestones on the ornament! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches (for the first time)! I hope you'll be back!

  2. Thank you so much Jen :-) yes I hope to be back. I'm still quite new to the world of Sketch Challenges but I do enjoy being gently pushed in new directions. It's been fun!
