Merry Monday Challenge #25 - Christ is Born

Hi there,
Today's post is for the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge this week.  I embossed the main image using Versamark and my Soft Suede Classic Stamp Pad. I left the Spellbinders Classic Circle Die attached to my circle and sponged So Saffron into the circle. The Star of Wonder was Die cut and sponged with So Saffron and a Crystal added to the centre.  The background was created by stamping off the Music image one and then stamping it onto the Vanilla card.  The words were stamped with Soft Suede and then I sponged around the edges.  The ribbon is the Dotted Soft Suede Ribbon in reverse.

Card: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, So Saffron
Ink: Soft Suede, So Saffron, Versamark, Crumb Cake
