Peace for 'Tis The Season

It's time for another challenge over at 'Tis The Season! I am loving this...I have over 20 cards made for Christmas 2014 so far, such a great start for the month of January!

This weeks challenge is a color challenge...we'd like you to use Marina Mist, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. I decided to join in the
monthly Christmas card challenge at SCS and the January theme is "peace", so I grabbed the dove from Calm Christmas and stamped that in Marina Mist, with just a touch of Old Olive used for the greenery.

My sketch is from the current challenge over at Sunday Stamps and so instead of the oval shape I just substituted the dove and I did end up leaving a front sentiment off. I embossed the Whisper White with the Snow Burst EF, and the Chocolate Chip was used for the scallop border and also the brads in the bottom corner, as brads are our optional trimming with the color for this challenge!

I hope you'll come by
the 'Tis The Season blog and check out the cards from the rest of the DT, and then we'd love to have you play along with us!

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Calm Christmas
Paper: Marina Mist, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Marine Mist, Old Olive
Accessories: Big Shot, Snow Burst EF (retired), Scallop Edge Border Punch, Chocolate Chip Brads, dimensionals
