Peace On Earth

Well it's not beginning to look like Christmas yet,
however we have snowflakes predicted for the end of this week,
nothing to worry about, but living off of Lake Michigan, well it happens!

I do have a Christmas card today that I really love.
Love that it is not just pretty, but the fact with a few dies
I was able to create an easy card.

I used 110# white card stock for the base, with a layer of red on top
and another layer of white on that.
Three CLD banners were die cut, then trimmed off at the Top
to fit my card.  
I ran a piece of scrap ribbon around the banners,
then die cut a Tutti Designs Glowing Candle.
A sentiment was stamped in SU  Real Red ink using
the SU Four The Holidays set.

Entering the following challenges:
Little Red Wagon .... What's Red All Over?
Watercooler Wednesday .... ATG Christmas

Yes, pretty and simple for sure! Must make note of the design... I heard on the news last night about white out conditions in Minnesota. I hope it doesn't get that bad where you are. It's too early in the year!
