Peace On Earth

Hello!  I have another Christmas card that is quite a combination of different stamp sets.  I really love doing that.  Taking several different sets and combining them to make my image.  This card has taken  5 different sets!  All from different companies too.  :-). Check it out...

So the stamps are as follows:
Lamb and lion from Eco Friendly set by Paper Smooches.
Pine bough from Stamping Gear Branches set by Inkadinkado.
Branch with berries from Casual Comfort set by CAS-usal Fridays.
Star from set by 7 Gypsies.
Sentiment from Holiday Sketches:  Christmas Flower set by STAMPlorations.

So first I stamped my lion and lamb and coloured with my Spectrun Noir markers.  Then I fussy cut it out.  I stamped my pine bough using the stamping off technique to get some lighter shades.  I used forest moss distress ink.  Then I stamped my berry branch in soft suede (SU!) then coloured the berries with my metallic red gel pen.  I stamped my sentiment in black and my star in yellow.  I adhered my lion and lamb with some foam dots.  Now, after I assembled my card I noticed that the layout resembles a Christmas tree.  This was totally unintentional but I like it!  :-)

I'm going to link up to the following challenges:
Addicted to CAS - code word is "cuddly".
ABC Christmas Challenge - it's S is for Something Festive.

You'll probably be seeing a lot more Christmas cards here as the season approaches.  I can hardly believe Thanksgiving is just around the corner!  Well, in Canada it is.  Mmmmm, turkey dinner.  My favourite!  I hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
