Non Traditional Christmas Nativity

 Good evening everyone, hope you are well! I dont know about you but in the midst of my Christmas crafting this year I became a little bored of the usual Christmas papers, embellies etc so I tried something really different and I am really pleased with the results! I stamped a Lili of the Valley stamp with Memento blue ink and left it uncoloured. I then paired this with Papermania Burleigh Blue collection for a Christmas card with a twist! Lastly I added little silver stars around my image :-) I'd love to know what you think!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

  1. I think you've made a gorgeous card. The simple palate of colours is very effective, and the image is so cute. Wouldn't it be just like a child to decide that his favourite teddy should play the part of the baby Jesus in a Nativity play?
