In The Manger

Good afternoon! I hope you've had a nice weekend!  I am still scrambling to get everything done, but I did manage to make another Christmas card.  I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday #185 for my card.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

I just love this beautiful image from Mo Manning called In The Manger.  You can find it in Mo's store here.  I started with a card base of SU Blue Bayou and layered with patterned papers from the Bo Bunny Snowfall 6x6 pad.  I printed the image onto Cryogen White and colored with Copic markers.  I cut it out with Spellbinders Classic Circle Nesties and matted it with doily made with Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs.  The verse is from Flourishes The First Noel set.  It was stamped with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  To make the wonderful image the main focus, my only embellishment was a wide stitched satin bow.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'm off to try to finish addressing my cards and get our tree decorated!  Hope you have a wonderful day!
