Peace and Joy

Project #35 of 100

I stamped the Worn Music background stamp on white cardstock, then aged it with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks. Then I stamped Peace & Joy from Unity and aged it as well, distressed the edges, and mounted on black cardstock.

Inspiration is from the following challenges:

* Unity Stamp Company Challenge Let it Snow which is to use snow, snowmen, snowflakes, christmas trees.. anything to do about this coming winter season.

And I got to use my new Helmar liquid scrap dots finally! There's dimension to the card without any unsightly white foam. : )
Can you tell? It looks like I didn't zoom in close enough and I'm too lazy to go back and fix it : \

Also, I think the card needs another color. I'm thinking pink. I thought about putting some Spun Sugar Stickles onn the flourishes on the tree. What do you think? It needs something. Maybe some rhinestones? Let me know if you have suggestions.
