Christmas cards all year Round

This month at Christmas cards all year Round our challenge is to use flowers on your Christmas card. I made this Peace on Earth card using stamps and powdered chalk by Stamp N Plus. I combined the a mixture of red chalks together with paint to paint the image in. After it was slightly dry I went over it again in areas to give it depth. Same thing with the leaves except I used two different color greens. The centers of the flowers are some beads I won. Glossy accents helped them stick to the flowers so beautifully.
The ribbon is by Offray, cardstock by Recollections, patterned paper by My Mind's Eye, in k by Memento Inks and lace is vintage.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. I hope you will join us for July's challenge, using flowers on your Christmas cards. You only need to make one to be in the running for the prize and Christmas is only 6 months away. You better get started now.
