Festive Friday - Trigger Challenge

The challenge this week at Festive Friday is a Trigger:

So many things came to mind, including several stamp sets to use, 
ended up with picking my sentiment first, and building around it.
Using PTI's newest mat stack die set, I embossed Silent Night from Happiest of Holiday (PTI), in Sapphire, Eggplant and silver powder. The Mixture looked to pretty to toss, so it was the powder used on the frame.
From there the card told me what it wanted to be like, white embossed pine needles and silver pinecones from PTI's Peaceful Pinecones stamp set.
I sponged aqua mist and winter wisteria over the embossing, and misted it.
A Silver ribbon, an embossed pinecone diecut and a few rhinestones completed the card.
Soft and peaceful, don't you think?
