Peace On Earth Paper Players Challenge PP517

 Nov. 15, 2020

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at  The Paper Players!

The AMAZING Ann is our hostess and she has a great Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us!  "Hooray for Holidays" is the theme and you can do any holiday you choose.  Just remember to keep it "Clean and Simple"! 

                                                        ANY Holiday of your choice!


What do we mean by Clean and Simple?

Minimal layers and embellishments
Plenty of open space, aka "white" space
Simple and uncluttered

I used a Real Red background for my card.  I cut the white panel using the Nordic Frames Dies from The Greetery.  I added a wood background stamp by Sweet and Sassy Stamps.  I used black ink to stamp this background.  The holly was stamped using a Holly Stamp from Technique Tuesday.  I colored the leaves and berries with Copic Markers.  Wink of Stella was added for shine. The Peace on Earth sentiment was stamped in red ink.
