MCV26 - Jesus is the Reason


This is my card for this week's Muse: ChristmasVisions challenge where we have two inspiration cards from our Guest Muse, Birgit.






I decided to try to include elements of both cards in mine:
- square card (second)
-frame (second)
-black die cut element on the left side (first)
-blue sponging (second)
-colours on the image inside the frame (second)

I used Simon Says Stamp Nativity stamps and dies and a Stampabilities sentiment.

I guess I didn't get as much as the first as I thought. How about you - how are you inspired by these cards? I hope you'll link up before the deadline on Wednesday at 8 am!

One of the most beautiful Christmas images of all the stamps sets ever. I love how you've colored the Holy Family. This card makes me happy, and want to give an "Amen" in agreement to the sentiment. Love this! Miss you dear friend. Bev
