Peace on Earth

   A quick note this evening  - I didn't get a chance to play in the Tuesday challenge over at Flourishes last week as we were out of town the week of Thanksgiving and I didn't get anything put together in time.
  I had stamped up a bunch of Christmas images to color when we were home - went to a craft fair with my Mom one day and sat with her in her booth, so between that day and some evenings, I managed to get about 8/9 images colored - now I just need to get them all put together.
   Both these stamps are from Flourishes. I colored the main image with prismacolor pencils and embossed the phrase in copper. The challenge this week at Flourishes is for 'stitching' so I added some faux stitching to the main layer, the brown and the base layer of DP.
  Check out the challenge here -
  For the maim image - the cardstock I used is Neenah Desert Storm from Paper Temptress. This is a great cardstock - kraft colored but smooth and takes both pencil and copics perfectly - it is one of my 'go-to' cardstocks (along with Neenah ivory and my top fav Cryogen White) I get my coloring cardstock here -  - but watch out she also has a ton of beautiful specialty papers that are very hard to resist (trust me I  KNOW - I just placed a large order this week :)
   All for tonight - time to get some super and then relax with the DH on the couch :)
         Take Care

Oh Tera! What a gorgeous card! I love the added touches of gold stitching. The colouring of your pine cone is gorgeous! Thanks for playing along with our Flourishes' "Timeless Tuesday Challenge" this week!

Tera, this card is gorgeous! Fab coloring, and the embossed sentiment looks really pretty over it. Love the dp you chose--especially the pine bough one, and those rustic buttons are the perfect embellies. I'm glad you were able to join us in this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge!
