LOC Joy and Peace

How are your Christmas cards going - have you started yet!?  I am getting through a few now, using the newest release from Layers of Color.

I am loving this Christmas Blessings art stamp set - it has been flying off the shelves - but are you really that surprised,

 especially as it is a Spellbinders coordinate with the Labels 18 Nestibilitie, this has been cut with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur

I have added a flourish from Tim Holtz

and a border from the Spellbinders Floral Doily Accent, Designed by Nina Brackett

My background paper is flocked wallpaper (I love this stuff) and some vintage lace has been added .  Half pearls have been added to the Flourish to finish off the card - wouldn't be Christmas without the bling now would it!?

This card is for the following challenges:
