Festive Friday meets Merry Monday for the final time this year

You get to select which of the challenges from the whole
year you would like to do AGAIN!  It must be new!
 
I chose the one with the trigger word PEACE.
Do you see it a few times on my card?
True peace comes from Our Savior...do you see HIM?
 
I couldn't NOT do this challenge along with Merry Monday
because that was white on white with a smidge of brown or kraft.
It is called "Magical Wonder"!
I used kraft for all the sentiments, stamped OFF once before stamping on my card.
After all the words from as many sets as I could find that had "peace" I then ran it through my cuttlebug with the PTI woodgrain embossing plate.
 
I stamped baby Jesus with dark chocolate and fussy cut HIM, (how come I don't have those dies?)
 
I wish you all a very blessed Thanksgiving day!
Heart Hugs,
Colleen
