Peace Dove

I'm back for a second post today.  I've created a card that I'll submit to two challenges.
I've used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the color combo from

I have to say trying to get those 2 skewed pieces of card stock to look right was not
the easiest thing I've done all day, but I managed to make it look okay.  I went through
3 pieces of red card stock and then the first attempt at embossing was done on the
wrong side. So there was a lot of trial and error. But, I think the end result turned out 
all right. Thanks for taking a look!
