The sentiment on this card is so wonderful for the Holiday season in every year, but it is especially appropriate this year. It really feels like we are so far from peace all around the world this year, and I’m longing for a sense of peace right now. And it helps me to create a little island of peace when I create a Holiday card in advance of the intensity of the season. The more that I can have cards ready to go, the more relaxed I’ll be come December.
I was inspired to create this card by the current sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches. The colors for this card came from the colors in the patterned paper that I used for the vertical strips in the design. I also added a gold laser-cut element to hold the sentiment, which definitely dresses up the finished card. I’m still in love with the Peace & Joy bundle, and I was so glad to use it for this card. I expect that I will be using this set a lot this year!
