Peace and Joy ~ CCMC416

Hello stampers and happy Thursday!  Create with Connie and Mary time is upon us once again!  We've got an elegant, fun color trio for you this time.  

This was actually the second card I made with this color combo.  I searched and searched for inspiration and finally decided on coloring a little blue crab from {You're Sublime}.  As soon as I finished putting that card together (which it was Ok, but not my favorite), BAM, this idea hit me!  

I pulled out my brayer, made a night sky with the Mint and Denim and added in the trees from {Lovely as a Tree} in Taupe.  
The layered up die cut "Peace" is one of my favorite techniques.  I really love the look of it.  
This card came together very quickly once the idea hit!  And, I like it much better than my little blue crab....although he's kinda cute.

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!


  1. Jenny this is just lovely - I would never have thought of using these colours in this way yet they work perfectly - your brayered sky is just gorgeous! love the layered diecut sentiment too - a fabulous Christmas card!

  2. What a beautiful, serene setting! Gorgeous holiday card!

  3. Beautiful! I love your card. You created such a serene and peaceful scene. I will have to remember to do the layered up die cut, it is a great technique

  4. wow your sky works perfectly! I wouldn't have thought to use these two for a sky either. Beautiful card! Really peaceful! :-)
