PEACE on Earth

For our next prompt, we're celebrating PEACE ... we're asking you to incorporate a Peace Symbol or the word PEACE into your design ... or you can create a card that evokes Peace for you (make sure you explain what makes it PEACEful to you).

Here are our PEACEful creations:

Stephanie says, "In addition to using the word PEACE for my sentiment, I incorporated a peaceful night-time forest covered in snowfall ... as well as a monochromatic CAS design using a sketch from Hero Arts (which I find to be peaceful on the eyes)."

Lauren says, "Having never made a Christmas card with a peace sign on it, of course I HAD TO try! I used a piece of clipart as a template to cut a peace sign out of sparkly glitter paper, which I used to frame a pretty dove from an old Christmas card. The snowflake background paper is another bit of "up-cycling" to which I've attached a few chipboard flakes for added dimension. I've sewn some (arguably) snowflake-like vintage lace around the perimeter, between the main panel and the card base, but I'm still debating whether I like the fact that it overhangs or not. If you see this in December and the whole thing's affixed to a slightly larger silver card base, you'll know I changed my mind, lol!"

You have until 6pm on Wednesday, June 4th to upload your PEACEful creations; gallery keyword for Flickr Gallery and other galleries is JB:14:11.

Wonderful prompt and cards ladies! For me, Stephanie's card depicts a perfect peaceful winter scene and I just love how Lauren incorporated the peace sign in such a clever and elegant way into her design. Things seem to be settling down over here, so I'm hoping I'll be able to join in again.
