Friday Flashback: Peaceful Wishes

Howdy, folks!  It's the last Friday before Christmas, and you know what that means:  the stores are gonna be PACKED this weekend.  And also this is the last Christmas stamp Friday Flashback this year :)  This week's choice is Peaceful Wishes.

Also features Many Merry Messages

This is another one of those times that I could have sworn I'd used a retired stamp set a whole lot more often, but other than two other versions of this same card this is IT from the archives.  So I made a new card for today:


At least this time I managed to use different stamps and make a completely different card than the first time :)  Most of the time I don't go back and look at my previous creations before I make something new for the Friday Flashback, so every once in a while my new card winds up looking a whole lot like whatever was in the archives.  Anyway, here's a closeup:


I showed the card to the hubs and we both thought the pine cones could use a little glitter, which you still can't see well in the picture but I tried.  So the pine cones have a bit of sparkle, because sparkle is always a good choice on a Christmas card.

I used the festive color challenge at Colour Me...!


And the sketch from Mojo Monday:


And there's one more Christmas card done :)  Christmas cheers to you, peeps!

LOVE the new card, but the colors are right up my alley. You'll notice when you get here to my house what I mean about being traditional. Not much has changed, but it HAS been a while since you've shared Christmas with us, hasn't it?!!! Can't wait.

Be safe in your travels. Love you!
