Peace for Jingle Belles

I made time this weekend to play along with Jingle Belles, they have a great challenge this week! They want to see either the peace sign on your card, the word peace or just create a card that evokes peace for you (and explain why it's peaceful to you!).

I elected to go with a card that has the word peace on it. I used the set Rejoicing with You for the main image, and the sentiment is from Calm Christmas. I used the retired DSP from SU called Winter Frost, I just love the colors in this paper!

The circle is from Nestabilities and I sponged the edge with Island Indigo and then paper pierced around it, and then I popped up the angel with dimensionals. The card still seemed plain to me so I paper pierced around the edges of the card also.

Now, my layout was inspired by the current layout at The Paper Players. I know I strayed a bit but cant you see the sketch in my card, with the angel taking the place of the rectangle shape across the middle? I know I stretched it but I hope others can see the sketch!

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise stated):
Stamps: Rejoicing with You, Calm Christmas
Paper: Smoky Slate, Island Indigo, Whisper White, Winter Frost DSP
Ink: Island Indigo, Smoky Slate
Accessories: Nestabilities Circles, Paper Piercer, sponge, dimensionals
