Peace Dove

While I was on holiday one of the things I needed to do was to start my Christmas cards and I'm happy to say that I did.
Last year I joined a challenge at Split Coast Stampers Christmas Cards Challenge whereby you pledge to make a card (or 2 or 3, you decided) each month so that when Christmas rolls around you are all organized. Well last year I was very good and kept to the challenge. This year has been a totally different story, to date I have posted...... not one! So I decided to rectify that and here is my first card for the year.
I will be entering it in the October challenge, I know that I'm getting a bit ahead of myself but the challenge is Birds!

I was very excited when I realized that it fitted the challenge at  Addicted toCAS perfectly too.

 I took my inspiration from these two great cards

now I just need to keep the momentum going!!!

I will also be entering this is Simon says stamp Wednesday Challenge where the cue is anything goes.
