“Peace” card with dimension

  Well, I have been getting my MoJo lately from Challenges…… I found an awesome Challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ- make a card with a Peace symbol or theme and at Sentimental Sundays to make a card with dimension. Well, there are a few other challenges in between- I will list them later……..
  This is a card for my co-worker Mini. She is a proud mother of a soldier who is currently in Afghanistan.  She is also very faithful and immediately when I saw this image at Create with TLC,  I HAD to have it and make her this card. 
















Here is a close-up of the dimension:


 I sewed around the edge of the card and distressed it, then added some Distress Ink around the edges. I also sewed down some ribbon- gathering it as I went along for dimension.  I think Mini will like this.

Other challenges:
Gingersnap-Neutrals and one color
Crafty Catz-stitching
Our Daily Bread Designs- anything with wings
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle-stitching
Sentimental Sundays-Sentiment and Dimension
Stampin Sisters in Christ-Peace symbol or theme
Incy Wincy-anything goes
365-Three G’s green(ery), glittery (Creative Insp paint) and gathered ribbon for a girl(y) card
Creative Card Crew-Bloomin Marvelous

Thanks for stopping by- please consider making a card for a soldier –and/or saying a prayer for a soldier and his/her family.

Great card! I don't know how well the ruffle will mail, but I think that a dove is the perfect symbol of peace!
