Peace on Earth

It's been like winter here today - cold, blustery winds and showers - just right for cosying up in the craft room.

I won some images from Karen's Doodles and this was one of my choices. It's been coloured with promarkers and then I sponged some blue DI onto the background. Image is matted onto dark blue stardream then gold mirri card. Base card has been matted with a grand nestie square of dark blue stardream wrapped with bakers twine. Card is finished with a stamped sentiment. a twine bow with a charm added.
