CUTTLEBUGSPOT CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE 'O HOLY NIGHT'

Good morning
Oooh it's frosty this morning -6c when I took Connor to college!
We are celebrating Christmas over at the Cuttlebugspot this week and Nilda asked us to use a technique such as inking, for our projects.
Mine really isn't a technique but I do love the look of embossed mirrorboard and that is what I used for my star.
My card is very simple but I hope conveys the real meaning of Christmas.
The nativity is cut in black card using a Sizzix decorative strip die 'Nativity' which I recently bought in the sale at Sizzix.co.uk,( this is just a portion of the die). I computer generated the text before embossing my background with a Craft Concept embossing folder (these are very similar to Cuttlebug folders and work the same way) called Sun Rays (when I saw this folder I bought it with the idea for this card in mind). Finally I added a star which is cut at 2" using my Cricut and Joys of The Season Cart shadow in black and base in gold mirrorboard which I embossed with CB folder Swiss Dots.
Pop over to the Cuttlebugspot and see the fabulous creations the rest of the DT have been working on and as always we would love to see your take on this weeks challenge.
Have a great week everyone! I'm just off to work!

BBBRRRRR is right! This is just gorgeous, Julie! AT first I thought it was the Tim Holtz "Rays" forder but when I checked, it is nothing like the beautiful one you used. Perfect! I must hunt this down! xxD

Beautiful card Julie! I love the nativity scene, and the embossed star. We must have been thinking alike, I see we used the same embossing folder, lol. Thank you again my friend, I love them all. Missed you on chat today, guess you were busy, hope to catch you soon. Oh, I will send you some of the gold beads, get them out to you over the weekend. Chat soon!

Hugz, xx
