I have nothing nativity related in my crafty stash but rather than not take part in the challenge this week I opted to go digital. A web search resulted in me finding this 'Away in a Manger' collection at Raggedy Scrappin. The artwork is so cute and the images are already coloured. All I had to do was re-size the images, print, trim and punch. Mind you, it took me ages faffing about on the computer, I definitely find stamping easier and quicker than working with digital downloads!
I really like the colours used in the collection, they're earthy and rustic which gives a warm and cosy feel I think. I started off with a Crumb Cake card base and I've added More Mustard and Bravo Burgundy as accent colours. I stamped the Peace Love & Joy sentiment in a dark brown ink and added yellow Stickles glitter to the star which is part of the digital image.
I stamped a sentiment on a white panel for inside the card and added a printed punched circle element. I chose the lovely sheep image for the envelope flap - it's so sweet, it really appealed to me!
