It's only the 4th day of the new year and I'm already making Christmas cards for next year!!  I really wanted to enter the challenge at CMC to create  a card with the theme Holiday Joy - using golds, creams and white - and I knew right away what image I was going to use.  This is "Peace" from Cuddly Buddly artist Kim MacFarlane which I colored with Copics.  Prima flowers, Memory Box dies, Spellbinders dies, a gold embossed sentiment, and ribbon from my stash complete my card.
