Watercolor Peace & Joy Christmas Card

Here is a watercolor and embossed Christmas card in silver with non traditional colors for the holidays.

Front sentiment:  Wishing you peace and joy this holiday season.

Inside sentiment:  Good tidings and cheer.

I wanted the look of ribbon or streamers in watercolor.  The vellum piece softens the look.
