Away in a manger

As I have probably mentioned before I have a bit of a "Thing", about nativity cards! I entered the Jellypark Challenge, "Stars shining brightly", with another nativity themed card and saw their GORGEOUS digi image which I just had to buy and use!

I cut the star on my cameo and swirled artist's spackle on it to create texture. I then embossed with WOW glitter embossing powder. I backed it on to Hessian and coloured the digi image using my trusted Copics. I tried to show the difference between the poor and the rich visitors to the manger with the colours I used! I put raffia in to create a "straw" effect. 
The card is textured but looks plain in the photo, it looks better if you click on it!

Stay warm, Denyse x

I would like to enter this one also in the Jellypark Challenge, "Stars Shining Brightly"

That's really fabulous Denyse, the colouring is wonderful and the way you've made the star is brilliant. I love Nativity scenes too x
