Peace on Earth

I already used this fabulous sketch, but I had another piece in my bits and pieces stash that was begging to be used with it.  I made this background about a year and a half ago and used a small piece on another card.  Since then, this piece has been sitting around and I was despairing of ever using it as it is not really big enough for much.  But it was JUST the right size for this sketch.

I backed it with a bit of textured silver paper and used the same paper for the strip along the top.  The sentiment is heat embossed with silver embossing powder and the snowflake was die cut from vellum and I added a recycled button.

Supplies:
Verve "Star of Wonder" sentiment; JustRite Stampers circles and stars background stamps (used in a class so I'm not sure of the name)
Dies: PTI "Fancy Flakes"

That is such a pretty background and I'm so glad you got to use up the snippet on this pretty card. The vellum snowflake and button is a perfect finishing touch.
