Peace on Earth

 I know, I know, Spring has finally arrived and here I am posting another Christmas card!  I had to print out a digital image for another card and when I do that, I like to put several images on a page so I don't waste paper and because while I'm already opening digital images, I may as well do a couple more since it doesn't take all that much longer.  And I've been wanting to use this image, so that's why you're looking at a Christmas card.  I even decorated the inside after being inspired by a couple entries into the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long challenge this week.

Challenges:
Word Art Challenge #77--anything goes with an uplifting sentiment
Charisma Cardz #16--polka dots
Viva La Verve April week 5--sketch
Crimbo Crackers #40--anything goes (Christmas related)
Sister Act #4--anything goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #122--ribbons and bows
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra--anything Christmas goes
Catered Crop--embossing (I used an embossing folder and gold embossing powder on the sentiment outside and the star inside)
Eureka Stamps #37--black and white
Desert Islands Challenge #52--pick at least 3 of the following (I used #1,2,3,4,8)

1. No Flowers
2. use Black or Red or Teal or a combo of all three
3. No markers
4. follow a sketch
5. use a birthday sentiment
6. use glitter/stickles
7. bling it up
8. go dimensional
9. Make is square, not rectangle
10.  use stripes and dots

Supplies:
Stamps: Eureka Stamps "Mary and Joseph Circle" digi image; Verve "Star of Wonder" sentiments and star
Dies/embossing folders: Spellbinders circles, large and ovals, large; Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder; Verve "Pennant Trim" die

This is gorgeous, Heather. You've done an awesome job making this really stand out while only using black and white (and a pop of gold). Thanks for playing along with us, and best of luck in the random draw!
Blessings,
