Peace On Earth

It's time for a new challenge at Festive Friday where every challenge is an inspiration list based on a selected holiday/festivity from the traditional to the unusual. Challenge projects must include at least three items from the festivity inspiration list.

Since the Inspiration List is a mix of elements related to the festivity, the creator has the choice to make something for that festivity, or to ignore the festivity all together and create something just using three (or more) elements on the list.

Today's festivities are in celebration of UN International Day of Peace, which takes place September 21st. The challenge runs from September 3rd - September 13th.

I like to create a card for our challenge that goes with the celebration theme. To create my card, I reached for my Impression Obsession Peace Doves dies and cut them from white fine glitter paper. I popped them up on a Spellbinders Hemstitch Circle Die on which I added a little DI ink and the die-cut olive branch. I lightly stenciled the card base with PTI Soft Stone ink and Picket Fence Studios Fancy Flourishes Stencil and added a sentiment from Paper Smooches. I used dove, white, leaves and die cut from the inspo list. 

Come play with us! Remember that your project does not have to go with the challenge theme. You can just use 3 or more items from the inspo list for your creation!

For more inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the  Festive Friday Challenge Design team.

Just love everything about this beautiful card Stephanie! The intense blue in the hemstitched circle against the stencilled background, the pretty branch, and above all those wonderful sparkly die cut doves! (They might have to go on my wish list if only I could find the end of it!!) Vicky x

Beautiful, Stephanie! I love the shade of blue you used on this amazing hemstitch circle. It's the perfect background for these lovely sparkly doves.
