Away in a Manger

It's 24 degrees and I'm making Christmas cards!
At 52 {Christmas} card throwdown the theme this week is the nativity.  I don't have a nativity stamp, or any other stamp with people, come to think of it....(umm, I see a gap in my collection!) so this one's been quite tricky. I love the background paper, which has been in my Christmas bits and bobs drawer for a year or so, but I sparkled it up with some punched out, glittery stars. I have to admit that the image is some clipart which I downloaded, but I've inked the white space with dark blue and purple inks and added some tiny pearl 'stars'. I am very pleased that this card got an Honorable Mention,  I need a box now to start my christmas card collection!


  1. What a lovely card Louise! The background paper is perfect for the nativity scene. It won't be long before you have a good Christmas card collection! Vicky x
