Peaceful Greetings

Happy Sunday!  I am getting excited about Christmas and love this sweet Holly Wreath stamp by The Rubber Cafe!
 First I stamped the image onto white paper using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft's Stampers Big Brush Pens in greens.  I used a scalloped circle punch to give the image shape. 

 When the ink dries, it is permanent because it is India Ink so it will not smear or bleed.  I used Scrap Happy Glue and the 'Lil Inkerz Foam applicator to edge the punched shape.

I then used the same applicator to go over the image with the glue.
   I used the You're So Fine Diamond clear cool highlight glitter.
  It creates a beautiful shimmer without blocking out the image.
 Next, I cut a piece of patterned paper and rounded the corners and applied The One and Only Tape to the back of the piece of paper.
 I attached the ribbon on the back and knotted it on the front. 

 The wreath and patterned paper was raised up with Zapdots by Helmar.

A little word "peace" was added and I outlined it in black pen to give it a bit of attention.
 Finally I added Jellie Dots in Holly Berry Red, which is the perfect name for this color!  I also added some Jellie Dots in Crystal Clear for a bit of sparkle.
 I love Christmas time and this pretty card will be a special greeting to someone I love!
