Christmas Peace

Today is the start of our second challenge for the month of October
at Peace On Earth
and Darlene has created this holiday mood board for inspiration!
Though we have a mood board, you can choose to use it or not
and create anything as long as it is Christmas themed! 

The main inspiration piece I focused on were all the  pretty wreaths!
After being addicted to Spellbinders Bold Blooms dies,
when I saw they released Holiday Blooms dies they jumped right in my cart!
This was another project I took with me in the summer to the lake house
and made several blooms.
I thought they would make a pretty wreath for this challenge!

I spattered gold paint on my card base (front and back) then die cut a 
twig wreath from Impression Obsession and started building my wreath.
The sentiment is a very old stamp set from  Kaisercraft.

Close up of the blooms.

The months are winding down as we get closer to Christmas,
by joining in our challenge at Peace On Earth now,
you will be that much further ahead when it comes time to mail
your cards!  Make sure to visit our challenge and see all
the amazing inspiration from our teams, they never disappoint!!

Entering the following challenges:
The Flower Challenge .... Sentiment

Oh, soooo pretty! Love me a wreath. You did such beautiful work with the other blooms I'm really looking forward to seeing lots with the Christmas blooms as well. This is gorgeous with the gold splatters and the pretty sentiment. Perfectly balanced and with an appealing clean look.
