Peace and Joy!


Hello friends! I have a card to share today playing along with a few blog challenges.

I started with white card stock.  I combined PFS Soul of Provence ink set for the background layers.  However, this stencil set has six layers, so I also used SSS Deep Purple ink.  For the top layer, I used my versamark embossing pen and gold embossed.  I used an artist brush and white acrylic paint to add splatters.   I trimmed the panel.  Next, I die cut the Stitched Scallop Rectangles.  I layered a couple of frames together for added stability.  I used some foam tape to add it to the top of the Wintry Forest background. 

For the sentiment, I stamped with versamark ink and gold embossed the Perfect Sentiments Holiday stamp and diecut with the Perfect Sentiments Holiday coordinating die. I added the completed panel to a top folding white card base.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins.

Here is a list of many of the products I generally
use every time I make a card.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Look at you nailing three HLS challenges in one go!!! This is beautiful. I'm not normally drawn to purples but your layers are amazing, especially with the gold. Thanks so much for playing along with us at the HLS blog.

You had me at purple! The previous comment said that she has never been drawn to purples, where I have been drawn to purples all my life! haha haha ☺☺☺ Marisela

  3. Wow, this is beautiful! I really love the colors you chose and the gold embossing really took it over the top for me. Thank you for playing with us at the HLS Die Challenge and hope you can join in again soon.
