Stamping Sisters in Christ Challenge

Good day after Christmas!! This card was made for this week's SSIC blog challenge which was a sketch this week. I wanted to use this new stamp set and tried to incorporate it into the sketch. I love the peaceful quality and solitude of this stamp, so I paired it with the sentiment you see. It was supposed to be a thank you card for a Christmas gift, but it doesn't say "thank you." I think I will send it anyway.
Yesterday I had a house full of 12 kids, 10 adults, and 2 dogs chasing each other around the kitchen while I tried to cook for all of them...I am tired today. It was nice, but I am really enjoying the quiet and wanted to make a card that reflected what I felt.
I hope your Christmas was merry!!
Here is my stamp recipe:

Stamps: Serendipity:Winter Doe, SU Hostess: Patterned Pines (snowflake), SU: Peaceful Wishes
Ink: Papertrey Ink: Enchanted Evening, Lavender Moon
Circle Nestabilities, Impressabilities, Blue Organza ribbon from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Store (on sidebar), Spare Parts snowflakes coated with Ice Stickles , EK Success Border Punch, Silver Embossing Powder

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
