AH 288 - Peace on Wood Christmas Card

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Challenge 288! 

It is an interesting sketch this week - and one that I chose to remain close to for my card. I had a die that I really wanted to use and I cut it twice in both red and green cardstock. There are a lot of details within the die itself so I just cut the flower section off the die cut and layered it on top of the leaves. 

The background was a challenge because I didn't want anything to compete with the flower... The sentiment is much more noticeable in real life than in the photo. It is almost lost here in the picture. I brushed the flower and leaves with shimmer brushes to bring out some of the details. The red pearls add an extra touch of shimmer to the card.
