Hello everyone! Christmas is only a couple of days away now and sometimes we forget the true meaning of Christmas. I know I do. We get caught up shopping for that perfect gift, making the best meals, etc. So I wanted to share this card, a reminder to me what it's truly about.
First off I have to tell you that this card is SO much prettier in person. I tried and tried to get a really good picture, but it just wouldn't come out any better than this. 
The manger scene was cut from Winter Frolic and I used lots of embellishments on it. I stamped the face with a Peachy Keen face, added chunky glitter to the star, and a added shredded raffia for the hay in the bed. The shadow layer and the card base were cut from metallic gold paper. I inked the edges of the cream background and added a metallic gold strip at the bottom with a raffia bow. To finish, I stamped the sentiment from My Craft Spot's Bundle Of Joy stamp set. What a perfect sentiment for this card, wouldn't you agree?
I want to wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR! Thank you so much for stopping in today and for all your bloggy love through out this year! HUGS!
