Just recently I was lucky enough to have a card selected as the winning entry into a challenge at  
Their challenge this time  is this sketch.
I decided to use a square card base rather than a rectangle and kept fairly close to the original design. Hessian and gold card seem a little far removed from each other, but I think that they team up reasonably well here. I wanted to to add the sentiment 'peace' but the dies I have with this word on were all too large so I decided to make it using my Silhouette Portrait,  cutting the word several times and stacking them to give a little more dimension. Looking at my card I think that the stars may have worked a little better slightly closer together... maybe next time!
I love making Christmas cards and this one is a little unusual!
