Festive Friday: Peace


Happy 4th of July my friends!  I hope you have lots of fun activities planned for this weekend!

Look at all those gorgeous presents for this week's Festive Friday challenge inspiration.  I liked the bold tartan but decided to go for a bit more muted look by putting vellum over some chevron patterned paper. I added a bit more texture pattern by embellishing the bow with some holly leaves and gems. 

I'd love to see how you are inspired.  Please pop on over to the Festive Friday blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration of the design team!
