Festive Friday: Peace on Earth

 This is my 3rd consecutive challenge for Festive Friday.   The challenge this week is to create a project with a bird in it. The dove is the perfect Christmas bird. The idea for my card came very quickly to me. I inked the background with Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky and Enchanteed Evening.

The dove was selectively inked from an old, red rubber stamp. When I was inking the background, I wanted to keep the body of the dove white. However, when I went to photograph the card, the image of the dove was blurred. So I filled it in.

 I have a couple more ideas for Christmas cards with doves. I'm sure I'll be back with another one later in the week. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

So pretty, Carol! I love the background and the delicate flourishes you've used with the dove! Love the white embossing, too! Nice to see you again!!
