Peaceful Flourish

Yes, we are another week closer to Christmas! This card uses the same colour scheme and stamp sets as last weeks Christmas card post, but with rather a different look. I stamped the Flourish first as I felt this would help me get the letters straight. When stamping letters like this I start from the middle, in this case "A", and then work my way out. For this card it made sense to stamp the "C" next, then the two "E"s and finish with "P". And angle of the brads makes it difficult to tell, but the rhinestones are Lilac.
