Peace, Joy, Love.....

Hello everyone: Well, Monday came and went for me, busy with my grandkids and granddogs , taking them to the pool, the park, or just having them here with me but, there is still time to play along with The Merry Monday challenge, hosted by Bonnie Klass and she is asking us to use the beautiful words PEACE, JOY, LOVE in our cards and, over at LiveLoveCards by Darlene DeVries, the challenge for June is LARGE SENTIMENTS, here is my card.


I don't have big sentiment stamps in my craft room, I believe this is kind of the only one from Flourishes dating back to 2012, I love this beautiful words, all decked up and happy for Christmas.
I stamped them onto a piece of Canson water color paper with Versafine Onix Black ink and cleared embossed them. I colored this images with SU markers and the aqua painter, sponged a bit of Broken China distress ink all around them and added some red Rhine Stones for some sparkle.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card, using the other word from the Merry Monday challenge, LOVE.


The word Love is die cut with a Penny Black die set called "Love and Joy", the ornament is from the set and it's stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink.
Here are the banners that inspired my card.

Use large sentiments.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
