Peace, Joy and Love

Good morning!  There’s a new challenge over on the Festive Friday blog.  We are asked to use birds on our Christmas card.  Back into the closet I went to dig out my Christmas paper.  This time I went for Authentique’s Peaceful because of the bird images (nicely covered up by the yummy seam binding ribbon) and Pink Paislee’s City Sidewalks.  I love the look of long tails on the bakers twine reminding me of candy canes.  I even snuck some sequins on!  Woohoo!  I found a great pack of neutrals at the Dollar Store :)  I used small glue dots to adhere them.  Hope you’re having a great start to your week!

This is a beautiful Christmas card Maureen. Lovely holiday colors, and I adore the bird veneer on that wonderfully tied bow with the twine streaming down. Your wreath made from patterned paper is inspired! Awesome creativity!

Moe this is stunning. I love how the twine trails from the bird. Fabulous!

Oh how gorgeous, Maureen. Love the background paper under the pretty blue panel, your seam binding bows are always perfect and the sweet wooden bird on the twine is delightful!

Mo, there's no jingle bell!! :D

I LOVE how you incorporated the bird! Subtle, but it's lovely! This is a gorgeous card - you're inspiring me to break out my Pink Paislee goods and USE them, rather than hoard!!

Thanks for playing along again, friend!!

This is the kind of card I can never get right - so many diverse, pretty elements and you got them all to work together without overwhelming the beautiful message of this - well done! Thanks for playing with us at Festive Friday!
