VLVDEC2013 wk3 and Diva Dare - Peace on Earth

Happy Holidays to all!! I was so happy to have some time again to create more cards and working on the Viva La Verve challenge sketches. This one is for VLV Dec Week 3 sketch designed by Charmaine Ikach which I found perfect for creating another Christmas card I needed. In addition, another opportunity to join the Merry Monday #88 challenge of using an animal which was extended to Jan 2014 and the Dec Diva Dare challenge of using a favorite Verve stamp set.

Here is my card: 
As I said in my previous post, I love my Verve stamp sets and have many favorite. Here is another one called Peace on Earth and love these little reindeers that have a matching die from the set: Unto Us. I only wish I had more time to make more Christmas cards. Another favorite are the seam binding ribbons from Verve, here I used the Signature Ribbon collection.

Here I used some Silver Foil Sheets along with paper from the Winter Frost Specialty by SU and hard to tell in the photo, but used the Snowflake embossing folder to create snow at the bottom for the reindeers to stand on. Also used my spectrum noir markers to color in the "Holy" section and added some crystal effects on it.

Don't forget, to check out the December Diva Dare 2013VLVDec2013 week 3, and the Merry Monday challenge and have fun.
