Nativity Peace Love & Joy Card - 52 CCT Theme Challenge #5

This week's challenge at the 52 CCT blog is a Nativity theme.

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!
