This is my card for CC496. Karen is our hostess and she chose Cherry Cobbler, Soft Sky and Island Indigo for her color trio. Our dessert option this week is to make a Christmas card. I am behind on mine so this was perfect for me.
I decided to use this Nativity Border die that I purchased recently from Taylored Expressions. To create my scene I first sponged my background with the Spellbinders Impressabilities diamonds and stars. I sponged on soft sky cardstock with island indigo ink.
The angel is the first stamp I ever purchased but there is no name on it. I stamped in Versamark and island indigo and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I fussy cut her to give more dimension. The Â“peaceÂ” word is a die from PaperTrey Ink.
My card is a 5 Â¾Â” square and the card base is where I used the cherry cobbler. ThatÂ’s my sample for this week. Hope you can play along with us. You may be our next color challenge fave of the week and be featured on our highly viewed and followed Pinterest board. See board here.

Beautiful nativity! The stenciled background with the stars inside the diamonds is perfect and is still peaceful eventhough there is quite a bit going on in that pattern. I guess it's these lovely soft background colors. Wherever that angel is from - it is a gorgeous one.
