Merry Monday meets Make it Monday...AGAIN!!

Heather has a great video HERE that shows a Layered Embossed Card for Make It Monday and Merry Monday asks us to have some kind of a Christmas Bird on the card.
I first stamped the background hearts with sweet blush ink, then I inked up a sentiment from the Peace Be Still set (Peace on Earth) and stamped it randomly using fine linen ink.  I then stamped the sentiment from Happiest of Holidays with black memento ink.  Then I stamped the "dove" with versamark ink and clear embossing powder.  I went back over it with sweet blush ink and a dauber to ink it up and highlight the doves.
                                                                                                                             I hope you will go to both sites and play along!
                                                                       Heart Hugs...have a great week,
                                                                                         Colleen
