Peace

 
Good Morning!  I'm popping in to share my card for the current Verve Get Your Diva On Challenge.  The challenge this month is to create a handmade embellishment.  I was inspired by this card on Pinterest and decided to give it a whirl.    I love the Teresa Collins Christmas papers.  I don't think I've ever purchased any of this brand paper before, but I love all the damask and text.  Gorgeous. 
To finish off the tree, I used the star from Verves Merry Wishes and the peace sentiment from New Mercies.  Finished it off by adding a couple of gems and inking up the edges.  Of course, the background panel is using my linen impression plate too...it's never far from my creations :)  Hope you all have a fabulous Monday!
Ingredients:  Cardstock: PaperTrey Ink White; Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip; Ink:  Stampin' Up Cherry Cobbler; Patterned Paper: Teresa Collins; Stamps:  Verve New Mercies and Merry Wishes; Gems:  Hero Arts; Impression Plate:  Linen PTI;
