Vintage Peace

Hi there,

I have a post for you at the weekend!! WOW lol.

I hve gone for a shabby-chic/vintage floral style for my Christmas card this week. I used a Shabby-chic cd-rom that my mum got free for having her letter published in a magazine, and then passed on to me as she doesn't do digital cardmaking lol.

Here is my creation:
I layered up the items from the CD-Rom (which takes forever with my current laptop - less than a year old and terribly slow!), and then added a word-art sentiment down the side. Unfortunately the printer did not like the last E and no matter how I moved things around refused to accept it was there - so I added it in metallic Promarker - also adding some metallic to the rest of the letters. I like using digital elements to make a single layer card.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:
My time to craft #334 No layers
CRaFT #390 Christmas
Craftycatz #347 Use red
OLL #217 Vintage
ABC Christmas - W for Wishes (Wish for peace)
OLS #33 Peace be with you

I would also like to post an update on my Christmas fairies:
(about 5 hours)

Thank you for looking,

Gorgeous work, and I'm particularly impressed with your fix for the uncooperative E. Clever and great-looking, too! Thanks so much for sharing this at the One-Layer Simplicity Challenge! Peace be with you.
