peace on earth...

Hello... stopping in with a simple card for a couple of challenges:  Merry Monday Christmas challenge (used red, grey and white) and November Viva La Verve sketch #1.  I have been wanting to play along with the Viva La Verve sketches for ages and to use my long neglected Verve stamps and the Merry Monday challenge gave me the opportunity.   I used two Verve sets:  Unto Us and Peace on Earth and one of the dies that matches the Unto Us stamp set.  I used some papers from the Pink Paislee Yuletide pad... just trying to put a little dent in my huge stash of 6x6 pads, lol!!   The inks are Stampin Up! Cherry Cobbler and VersaFine Smoky Gray.  After cutting all the pieces of patterned paper I roughed up the edges a bit.  I decided to go a bit old school and I did not use much die cutting except for the reindeer.  I even hand cut the fishtail banner!  Stamped the sentiment, layered everything up on a light grey cardstock base.  I'm also going to add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge of Christmas critters since my card has reindeer on it.
Hope you have a wonderful day...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Soft Stone; Patterned paper:  Pink Paislee; Stamps and dies:  Verve; Inks:  Stampin Up and VersaFine Smoky Gray

Thought I went through everything in my Feedly, but obviously not! Once again you make magic with a sketch, Rosemary--really love this card! Beautiful papers & such a great sentiment stamp--deserves to be the focal point! You've inspired me to use my neglected Verve stamps!
