Jessica Fick, the Design Team Coordinator for GinaK Designs has issued a challenge to all of the past and present team CSS team members to make a Christmas card with one of these sketches:
We know you're going to LOVE what everyone has designed for us tonight!
First, here are the links for GinaK's Current CSS Team Members:

Some of GinaK's Senior Design Team Members and Illustrators wanted to get in on the fun tonight too:
along with Nina Brackett's Guest Designer: Lisa Hjulberg
And, of course, we cannot forget the ever talented Gina K. herself!
Whew! Quite a list, eh? I hope you can stop by as many of them as time permits for you. And, now, onto my creation:
I used this beautiful dove from designer Rupa Shevde's The Magic of Christmas set. The full sentiment actually reads Peace on Earth, but I only wanted the word Peace so it would fit into the oval, so I used a Versamark pen to highlight peace and then gold embossed it. The dove was also gold embossed, cut out and popped up on dimensionals. I used pretty green stickles to color the leaves on the twig the dove is holding in his beak. The red dry embossed bg was embossed with Stampin Up's Petal's a Plenty textured impressions folder onto red vellum paper (thanks to my friend Lynn for both of those items) and then I added the same pretty green stickles to the centers of the flower petals. The corner poinsettia and leaves embellishment are silk.
