Peace -- For the 100th (and final) challenge at Colour Me...!

Some images simply evoke a certain response, don't they?  A winter's scene with the moonlight glistening on the snow, trees in the distance and a sleigh pulled by a horse gliding by---what does that make you think of?  For me, the word is "peace".  And that's what this card is all about:  peace.

I've used a base of the heavyweight Whisper White followed by a layer of Soft Sky.  Then I've added another simple layer of Dazzling Details Glimmer Paper and, finally, the die-cuts of the trees and the horse drawn sleigh.  I've cut those images from a piece of Soft Sky and brought the die-cuts right to the edge of the glimmer paper so that they appear linked to the Soft Sky layer.  Finally I added a die-cut sentiment in Soft Sky as well:  the single word, peace.

It's very simple.  I've added no other embellishments.  After all, what could possibly compete with the glistening Dazzling Details?

This is my card for the final challenge of Colour Me...!  It's a challenge I didn't play every time, but I followed it and played along each time the colours intrigued me.  I will miss the challenge.  It was always fun.
