Inspiration Goes to Christmas Card

Today’s Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoaststampers is a white bird and tree limb over an aqua circle. 

I love the concept but didn’t want to waste my time making a non holiday card as I still have several to make to send out to my friends.  I used this inspiration to go to  lovely holiday swag and bird images from an old retired SU set called Feathered Hope.  I created a brocade blue reverse masked circle with a sponge on pure white cardstock and then stamped the images with white craft ink and embossed with white craft ink.  I love the simplicity of the white image on the blue.  I felt "Peace" was the perfect sentiment to attach to this simple yet meaningful setting.  I am an stamping artist that many times goes way over the top.  It is soothing to find such satisfaction out of such a simple card.
