Peace I Bring to You

I want to be as peaceful feeling as this card is peaceful looking! But I have too much to do tonight - I need to be working on some Christmas gifts - so what do I do? the color challenge at Split Coast of course! I got this idea of the layered trees in my head and just had to make the card before anything else! (you know that feeling - right??!!)We were to use Not Quite Navy, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and Basic Grey. I had to use Night of Navy card stock for one framing layer but I did have Not Quite Navy ink so used that on the sentiment. And the trees are Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze. I fit the Basic grey in for the bottom layer. I love how the Swiss Dots look like it's snowing in the forest when you cuttle the whole panel.

Now I can take a few deep breaths - relax a little - eat some supper and move onto my other projects hopefully in a calm peaceful manner!!!

Hope you have a quiet relaxing night too!

Julia, I love this! The layered trees look so good and I love that you used the Swiss Dots right on the image layer. I never would have thought of that and it looks awesome!

TOTALLY know what you mean about needing to do something and stamping instead! This is beautiful. Love the "snow" background.

I love what you did with the colors. The sponged edges are a great accent and I love the embossed snow.

...had to laugh at the *addiction* comment about the sugar and spiced nuts...I'm with ya, GF! We're addicted to them too, LOL! Thanks for writing that you like the recipe..it's good to know people actually like the recipe and that I didn't post a tanker, LOL!
