Peace Dove

My Candy is here.  I'm a new blogger trying for 50 followers.

I've been recycling again!  I hate to waste those beautiful Christmas cards I receive so I save them to recycle/upcycle into new cards.  In this case, the dove was a tag on a gift I received last year.  I mounted it on white and black cardstock and affixed to a grey card with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment in black and embellished with clear gems.
