Peace and Joy

Hello!  What better time to make Christmas cards than July?  Especially when it is raining!  I was playing with the challenge sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches and some stamps from Gina K Peace & Joy set when I came up with this design.  Added in some pattern paper from American Crafts Kringle and Co  pad and some red ribbon.  Other supplies: Memento Tuxedo Black and Cottage Ivy inks, Copics, Ivory and Red CS, Rectangle dies.
