I've been seeing a lot of cards based on a new card challenge - the Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge. When I checked it out, I fell in love with their graphic and was immediately inspired to create this card.
I was inspired by the soft colors of the tree image which pointed me towards the dsp. Then the lower right caught my eye because it had the look of the Stampin' Up dies that I used on yesterday's card. Today's card has an entirely different look than that card and that variety is why I just had to have the dies in my collection! I did originally intend to do a larger grouping of dies because I loved the look of the inspiration photo - but using only the two stars kept it clean and fresh (and calm!) BTW - there are three other shapes in the die set and I intended to use a different shape today than yesterday, but the star worked with the paper!
The sentiment is from Simon Says and is exactly what I thought the card needed to say!
Thank you to the Peace on Earth challenge for the inspiration.
