Stampin Sisterhood Sunday-SS3

This weeks challenge is an inspiration piece:
I drew inspiration from the layout AND from the subject.

Ever since I can remember, one of my favorite things to do is to sneak into the living room after dark, and sit and gaze at the lit Christmas tree, all by myself.  I did it when I was in elementary school, and I still do it today.  Such a peaceful feeling.
Here is my card:

I used the Rubbernecker stamp set: Christmas Tree Set SKU:592
I cropped the white squares first, then using green ink, I stamped each of the trees.

To make decorations on the tree, I got out my acrylic craft paints and my embossing stylus. TA-DA! Ornaments and lights! The red I had looked a little too matte when it was dry, so I added some glue and fine clear glitter.

The dove was punched from some embossed cardstock.  I sanded the edges and the surface .  On that same square, I inked the word "Peace" from the Scroll Peace SKU:1204 SO  stamp.  The bow is just a few inches of bakers twine.

The base of the card is patterned  paper that has had the edges sanded and then mounted on white cardstock.  All of the elements of the card are mounted with foam tape.
