Peace and Joy



I am so excited to show you today's set called Peace and Joy.  There's just something so unique and special about it.  Designed by Becky Fleck, it gives you the graphic quality of two beautiful truths about Christmas, as well as some beautiful decorative elements.  


Woweee right?  It's just so elegant and detailed.  I love the intricacy of the designing in the letters and I thought I'd play it up with some Copic Marker coloring.  I stamped on Flourishes Classic White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black, cutting it out with a Spellbinders Labels Fourteen, and framing it with the Ornate Artisan dies.  



Here you can see a close-up of the coloring on the lettering.  I added some beautiful metallic velvet along the top of the design and some green rhinestones to accent.  The papers are MME Christmas. 



Here you can see the coloring on the ornament that's also included in the set, the beautiful Christmas Green silk ribbon and hat pin I added to the design.  You can just catch that I added some glitter pen to the ornament as well.
