Merry Monday Peaceful Christmas

We're around to Merry Monday again.  This week's sketch had me stumped.  But after a few false starts, I came up with something I was pleased with.  Here's Lesley's sketch.



And here's my card...


Pretty simple actually.  I stamped the pine branch from the old, old Peaceful Wishes set in Old Olive, stamping them off the page.  Punched some 1/4" circles from scraps of Glimmer Paper to pop on there, stamped a sentiment and the design was done. 

All of the design team has come up with some beautiful cards so be sure to check them out.



All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Peaceful Wishes (retired), All Holidays (retired)
Ink:  Old Olive, SU Markers (Real Red, Old Olive)
Paper:  Whisper White, Old Olive, Red Glimmer
Other: 1/4" Circle Punch

Thanks for visiting and have a happy Monday!

Enjoy!

So pretty, Bonnie. I think the two of us did similar things with our card. Love your pine branch and ornaments.
Thanks to all of you for letting me be Guest Designer this week.

I was stumped too! When I saw yours in the gallery I realised I could do something other than a snowflake - thanks for the inspiration. I love the cleanness of this gorgeous Xmas card Bonnie - you make it look so easy!

Colleen Dietrich said...

OH, I really, really like seeing the oldie but goodie set, Peaceful Wishes! These branches make a wonderful sub for the big snowflake depicted on the sketch.
