And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Peace on Earth

Hello friends...hope you are having a good week!   I can't believe it's November already...but, since it is, it's time to seriously get those Christmas cards made!  Today I am hosting the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers and thought I would take the opportunity to get another one finished!

Creative Nugget:  I just realized that this card is very geometric...each of the basic shapes... circle, square, rectangles, and two triangles are represented!  The Earth, a new stamp set by Our Daily Bread Designs, was clear embossed on a sheet of patterned paper in the new Christmas Collection 2013 paper pack. It was cut with a Circle Nestie and matted on Burgandy Kaisercard.  The sentiment was gold embossed on the small rectangle layer and the Joy to the World music background was gold embossed on the larger rectangle.  Each layer was edged with a gold pigment pen.  The little poinsettia from the new Poinsettia Wreath stamp set was gold embossed, colored with Copic Markers, and cut with the matching Poinsettia Wreath Die. Gold micro beads were added to the center of the flower.  The burgandy Decorative Corners Dies, gold pearls, and a gold bow finish the card.

Here are the materials from the 
ODBD Store used on this card:














This card will also be entered in the following Challenges:
ODBDSLC177 - Be Inspired by a Song or Music
Word Art Wednesday Challenge #105 - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful day!

Hugs,
