A Child Is Born

Hello all, I'm a day late with my inspiration for the current challenge at Make My Monday with a theme chosen by Jacqueline this week which is NATIVITY.
It had me a tad stumped I confess as I don't really have anything that would fit the theme so a Google search finally turned up a vintage postcard which I used for my card. Here's the result and hope you like it as this time there's no inking involved - very unusual for me as you know!

I've used papers from a Bo Bunny set which was a magazine freebie as I like the rich red as a contrast to the colours on the image. The only other addition was the embossed gold card I found lurking in my craft stash and I punched out a star to embellish as it made me think of the 3 wise men.

Hope you can join us and have a great week whatever you're doing.
Fliss xx

So nice to see a card depicting the true meaning of Christmas Fliss.

In case don't pass this way again before the big day, here's wishing you and your family a peaceful and joyous Christmas.
