Peace onto you

And now for something totally different!
How's this for a Christmas card...not quite the traditional colors, huh?
Mada gave us a really wonderful sketch over @ Just Christmas & Birthday Cards. And I knew I wanted to use my SU! Peace onto You stamps. Well, the lion and the lamb fit nicely in a circle but they certainly didn't coordinate with any Christmasy green and red color scheme. Then I saw Ooh-La-La's black and gold challenge! So I decided to go for it! In the past, I have stamped this outline image in many colors to match the card, but I like it best when the lion has color. A great masculine Christmas card, don't ya think?

WOW this is stunning Maria love the colour's. Your question on how i managed to match up my flower with my pink heart well it was just pure luck lol that i had the same colour flower in m stash.

Your card is stunning, Maria! The lion and the lamb is great! I like that you chose the text Peace instead of any other christmassy-text. Great job with the sketch!

Thanks for joining the JCBC this week!
