Peace and Goodwill!

This card is for today's SCS Inspiration Challenge(IC207)! Thanks, Stef!
Here is the link to my inspiration buttons! This card is also for Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C12)!

I am using two of ODBD releases this month called Blessed Christmas and Christmas Verses. I went with ivory and kraft cardstock in keeping with the look of the buttons. I stamped the poinsettia in snow white craft ink onto the kraft and let dry. I used a damasklook sizzix template for my embossing to further mimic the button looks. I stamped my scripture with Ranger vintage photo ink. I layered a MS border punch along the bottom to further showcase more patterns in my card that give the look of the different buttons in the set. I finished with a simple bow using the bow easy and a heart charm and some gold pearls!

I just want to add that I do start out with the exact sketch for the challenge in mind, but somehow I always manage to turn it or do something alittle different. I hope that is okay!

Thanks for stopping by! I am hoping that the blog issues are fixed. If you are still having trouble commenting, please let me know via pm at SCS! Thanks a bunch!
