Wishing You Peace

More rain + low atmospheric pressure = brain disorder attack! Hope this weather clears up soon. I was really hoping to get some sewing done today but I can't stand the sound of the serger (or any loud noise including the pipe organ at our church) when I'm under attack so I headed down to the lower studio (aka the basement) and made a card for this week's challenge at Merry Monday which closes at noon today.

I used their sketch too! I first made the card base from a piece of 8.5 x 11" paper cutting it into a 5.5" square with the fold at the top. Then I added the designer paper at the top after running a gold ink pad around the edges of it. Tiny gold stars from a peel-and-stick was added at the bottom of the designer paper. The cardinal was a sticker that I first stuck to white cardstock and then cut out and glued him down. The star is also a peel-and-stick, at least the middle two are. I glued them to the left over piece of cardstock I used to make the card base but I wanted the gold to be on the outside and I didn't have any larger peel-and-stick gold one so I just glued it to a piece of gold from my stash and cut around it. The sentiment is also peel-and-stick. It's hard to read on the picture but it says "Wishing you a season of Peace". The stars underneath are the left over from ones above and then I added some pine cones and berry stickers that came with the cardinal. Overall, I don't mind it.
