This is simply stunning. I love the embossed snowflakes and the dark blue c/s. The dove and the sentiment just made me catch my breath. Just what this earth needs and all of us need peace in our hearts. I haven't been around much to read your blog but I scrolled through and your tags are just wonderful. I love the gingerbread man and the gold trees are gorgeous. Have a relaxing, wonderful holiday.

It's breathtaking in the simplicity of the design. A wonderful image for this particular time in our world too. The bird is lovely die cut from the pretty dp, and looks stunning against that crisp white embossed design. TFS & Hugs

So glad you rescued that lovely dove from your UFO box! I haven't pulled that stamp out this year - must do so! Love it heat embossed on the blue, and it's perfect set against that embossing folder.
