Merry Monday # 74, Festive Friday # 16

Merry Monday has a new image for this week.
You need to use green and white with some woodgrain!
At first I couldn't think of anything to make for this, then I
came upon this woodgrain paper from MME "dolled up"
 
If you want to play along and get started on your Christmas cards go to
Merry Monday  and play along.
Paper:  PTI select white, new leaf, MME dolled up
ink:  PTI new leaf
stamps:  Holly Jolly, Stylish Sentiments: Holiday
ribbon:  PTI white
circle nestabilities for the frame of the circle 
dies:  Holly Jolly

And this will also work for the Festive Friday Challenge.
The Trigger word is "Peace"
 
Thanks for taking a look!
