Peace on Earth


Hello everyone!

I'm back today with another Christmas card. I realized that the background of this tag stamp is the same as one of the Retro backgrounds, so I designed this card to use both! I followed the Card Positioning Sketch 132 .



I stamped the background on Vintage Cream cardstock using Antique Linen ink and colored each circle with the three Copic markers that matched the PTI colors.

Thanks for looking!
Melissa
