O Holy Night....

Hi there and a happy Wednesday to you! Today I'd like to share a card with you that I made for two challenges: the Deconstructed Sketch #79 and the Drunken Stampers #108: Fire and Ice.

Here are the challenges:

I used the Nativity stamp I have from Inkadinkado for the main panel. That gold "star" is actually a snowflake applique, but for my scene, I'm using it as a star! I wrapped some gold floss on an angle (like star light) after I inked the edges and distressed all the paper panels. I was going to trim off the ends of the floss that are poking out under the star, but I kinda dig how it looks, so I left them! The inside sentiment is from the same set. I stamped it in Rich Cocoa then colored the letters in with a marker. And that, my friends, is my winter theme!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful rest of your day!
