Peace On Earth

I am so excited to say that I was invited to be Guest Designer for Muse: Christmas Visions MCV85! Today is the day! The Challenge is now open on the Muse: Christmas Visions Blog. Woot!! Thank you Cornelia and Ardyth!

As I was pondering my creation, I put my hand on this wonderful Hero Arts wood mounted stamp that I love so much. Thinking about the state of affairs in this crazy world in which we live, I decided to go with a theme of peace.

For the background panel, I pounced my Versa Mark pad on the SSS Falling Stars stencil and heat embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum EP.
I embossed the earth image on watercolor paper with the same EP, and watercolored it with Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers. The sentiment is done with Winnie & Walter's The Big, The Bold and The Merry Cutaways and stamps. I mounted the earth and the word "peace" with foam tape, and finished it off using a paperclip for the ornament hanger.

As of this posting, there are 96 days until Christmas. Wouldn't it be lovely to have a stash of handmade cards to send? Please join me and the Muse: Christmas Visions Designers and get your Christmas Card making groove on! You can find all the details on how to play HERE. I am so looking forward to seeing how my card inspires. Have fun!!
