PEACE on Earth

Jingle Belles is celebrating holiday things that fly. So, I dug out my acrylic paints and painted a dove then fussy cut around it. I handcut the letters for the word peace, placed them on top of a piece of dark blue cardstock, then cut away part of the blue cardstock.  Using a bit of blue ink, I inked around the edges of the letters then adhered them to the edges of the blue pieces of cardstock. I attached the dove with dimensional adhesive and used dimensional adhesive to attach the blue cardstock pieces. Next I added the punched leaves. Next I used a gel pen to finish the sentiment added faux stitch lines around the outer edges of the card.

I'm also linking this card up over at Crimbo-Crackers where the current challenge is "Anything Goes" as long as it's Christmas or Festive.
