Unto Us A Child Is Born!

Join us this week at Delightful Challenges 
for "A Very Sparkly Christmas" challenge!

For my card this week I used a brand new Christmas set from Digital Delights - Three Wise Men Set.  My paper is very sparkly with lots of stars and I added a strip of stars to the top of my z-fold card.

Of course the Wise Men are on their way to see the Christ child.

The Christ child is from the A Child Is Born Nativity set.

I used Liquid Applique to puff up the edges of his coat and the beard below.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Digital Delights Three Wise Men Set, A Child is Born Nativity Set, Caroling Sentiment set
Papers: Very Vanilla, Plum, Little Yellow Bicycle - Sharon Anne Christmas Magic Collection
Markers/Inks: Copics E15, E17, E18, Y02, Y06, Y08, E01, E02, E11, E13, R37, R39, W1, W3, W5, B24, B26, Distress Tea Dye
