MMCCC #73 and FFC16

cover

I was doing so good for awhile on my Christmas cards but I fell behind. Hoping to get back in the swing of it again as I am working on a design for mass production.

Today's card is for both the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge and the Festive Friday Challenge. Criteria for Merry Monday is to use red, green and kraft with a choice of ribbon, wine or burlap. The current Festive Challenge is a Trigger Challenge based on the word peace.  This is what I came up with, a card that could be easily dropped in the mail.  One layer, no bulk.
