Christmas Blessings

My latest order from SU arrived yesterday, and this "Baby Jesus Is Born" set was in it. I couldn't wait to mount it, and make this card using the layout on page 21 in the catty. I changed it up just a little, and it was a fun card to make. The image is stamped with Jet Black StazOn on watercolor paper. I used my classic inks and Aqua Painter to color, then cut it out with my Coluzzle. The base is Blue Bayou with a strip of Close to Cocoa and Sky Blue. I attached my main image to the base, then used my piercing template, and tool to pierce around the circle. The star is Brushed Gold card stock, and is punched and layered with the Star & Snow Blossom punches. The ribbon is Blue Bayou double stitched ribbon.

Thanks for looking, and have a nice day!!
