Merry Monday #206 - Nativity

Hello friends.  This weeks Merry Monday challenge is to use a nativity on your Christmas card.  I just used my favorite nativity scene in a card two weeks ago, so I chose a favorite Mother/Child image from a retired SU! set called Miracle of Christmas. 


This is one of those cards that you have to trust me on when I say it is so much prettier IRL!  The image is embossed in WOW silver pearl and has such a beautiful shimmer against the black, and then the white cardstock is sparkly and adds another touch of shine to this simple card.  The little heart tag (Tiny Tags by PTI) is also die cut out of a silver metallic cardstock, adding yet another element of shine to this card.  And I even finished the inside this time:


LOVE the sentiments that came with this set! 

There's still time to play along with this challenge, and you can find all the beautiful cards done by the DT for inspiration HERE.


Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)

  9. If this card doesn't win the challenge, I'm going to wonder why. It's so touching in its simple message. The card image is so heart-felt.
