Peace Faith Hope Love

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! My card today started with a Splitcoast challenge to have something "groovy" on your card. I figure this big ol' peace sign is about as groovy as it gets. Along w/ the sort of tie dye bg. It's one I had in my stash, just waiting for the perfect card. It was made by dropping a few drops of dye reinkers onto glossy c/s & blowing thru a straw to move them around. I stamped the Peace Sign on part of it, die cut it w/ circle die, then used a craft knife to cut out the centers. The peace word was also die cut from it.  So I'm thinking what goes w/ a peace sign besides the peace die cut? Well, Faith Hope & Love, of course! When I rec'd this new image, it had the edge of the rubber sheet line across the top. Now I know you're supposed to trim that off, but I thought it made a perfect line to put my peace die cut on, so I left it. I colored in the words (they're kind of groovy, too, w/ the big fat lettering) and die cut the panel & attached the peace & peace sign.
I added a black strip on the left & another tie dye strip on the right.Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
