ISSC39 - Peace and Joy

It's Friday again and another iSpy challenge is up!  This week the challenge is inspired by Maureen Plut and is based on this card.  Thanks so much for the fabulous inspiration Maureen!!!!!

And this is the sketch put together by Kim over at iSpy:

I love this sketch as it is so simple yet allows you to play around a little with each component.  So here is the card I created:

I am so in love with the versatility and colours in this years Simple Stories Handmade Holiday collection.  Initially I made the card quite simply with the gorgeous patchwork style background.  For a quick Christmas card I could have  just stopped there.................. but then I decided to add some additional detail to the background so I cut some of the patchwork element out of an additional piece of paper and foam mounted them over the design to give the background some dimension.

The sentiment was also taken from the range and I added some glitter with a Gel Roll Pen to finish it off.  This was also foam mounted.  I also added some hand pleated co-ordinating paper to the front before finishing off with a seam binding and hemp bow.


Paper - Simple Stories, Handmade Holiday 6x6 paper pad
Other - cream seam binding, Darice hemp twine, button, Gel Roll pen, TH Tea Dye distress ink and Heidi Swapp edge distressor.

Want to join in the fun with us at iSpy???  Head over to the blog and see how here.

Thanks for stopping by - can't wait to see what you create!!!!
