Away in a Manger

I made this card for the Crafting with Dragonflies 'Christmas Card in Non-traditional Colours' challenge.  I'm also entering The Paper Shelter 'A Christmas Card' challenge, the Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes' and The Merry Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes + Christmas'.  The paper and card are from my snippets mountain so I'm also heading into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Stamp: Little Claire Designs 'Away in a Manger' digi
Punch: Woodware Squared Corner
Colouring: Promarkers
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: Brown card, gold/yellow paper

I trimmed the gold paper, layered it onto brown card and attached it to the card front.  The digi stamp was resized and printed onto white card before being coloured with Promarkers to match the paper and card.  I trimmed the image to a square, punched the corners, layered it onto brown card and attached it to the centre.  To finish I highlighted the stars with a Wink of Stella.
