Christmas Classics Peace on Earth

It is Thursday and time for a new Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.  This week it is a color challenge.  


Here's what I do when starting to work on a color challenge.  I pull out the cardstock for the colors in the challenge.  I look through the DSP (Designer Series Paper) to see if there are any that have the  challenge colors in them.   If still nothing comes to mind I pull out any ribbon and/or embellishments that are in the challenge.  Doing these things usually sparks some ideas.  


The Balmy Blue & White ribbon is what sparked the idea for the card.  

Let's talk about the sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Classics stamp set.  I wanted to emboss it but didn't have any red embossing powder.  This is what I did.  I inked up the stamp in Versamark ink first and then a Real Red pad.  This colors the sentiment and the Versamark makes it a little sticky and will hold the embossing powder.  I sprinkled Clear Embossing Powder over the sentiment and then used the Heat Tool.

Inside I stamped a sentiment from the Beary Cute stamp set.  I also added a few more dies from the Magical Meadow dies.
