Wishing You Peace This Christmas

Doesn't this stamp by Stampendous just speak of peace?  I keep coming back to it each Christmas.  I never start the Christmas shopping thing early enough so feel pressured the last week before Christmas and I probably will not change because I hate shopping and therefore put it off until the last minute.  We keep the gifts and expense to a minimum (which makes it harder) and try to center on what is important.  This stamp is a reminder that it is not the gifts, the decorations, the hoopla; it is Jesus.
I stamped the image with Versamark and then blue, embossed with Iridescent Ice EP so it has some iridescent sparkle to it.  The colors change as the light hits it at different angles.  Very hard to photo.
