ODBD Peace on Earth

I think this is the first year we did not buy poinsettias for the house - but I can still put them on cards.  They last longer!  Here I place a couple along a curved edge with some beautiful paper from the Winter Collection peaking out.  After I stamped and embossed this sentiment (LOVE this scripty Peace) in silver, there was this awkward white space.  So I added strings of rhinestones down.  Hope your Christmas season thus far has been beautiful and meaningful.

And the rhinestones below the wonderful sentiment are beautiful with your wonderfully matted border. Truly a beautiful card, sweet friend! (P. S.
