Peace and Flowers

Since I’ve got back from holidays I’ve been itching to get stamping again and thought it would be fun to try to combine the Signs of Peace Challenge in the Moxie Fab World with the current Hero Arts' challenge Keeping in Touch and Back to School.

Peace and FlowersStamps (Hero Arts):- Four Dolls & Tree Birds and Messages.

The peace sign makes me think of the 60s and 70s, flowers, Woodstock, hippies, embellished clothing, friends etc. So I tried to incorporate these into my card. To start with I made a peace sign out of card. Then I stamped and cut out lots (and lots!) of flowers, put them on the peace sign using foam pads and added quite a few gems. For the background I used the Cuttlebug distressed stripes embossing folder which reminds me of wood - a bit of a stretch I know for Woodstock! I love this sentiment and thought it would go with the peace sign and the Hero Arts keeping in touch theme.

Hope you all have a wonderful, peaceful, groovy weekend!
