CHNC challenge 109: nativity
For my CHNC challenge 109 that starts this morning I'm asking for Christmas cards that in some way depict the nativity. It might show an image of Mary and Joseph, the manger scene, the wise men, shepherds etc or perhaps a scripture verse of phrase from a Christmas carol that refers to the nativity in some way.
There are three sponsored prizes to be won for this challenge - please go over to CHNC challenge 109 for details and, hopefully, join in.
For my first card I've used an image kindly supplied by one of the sponsors, Pink Gem Designs, called 'nativity Philip'. I cheated a bit and printed out the coloured version and mounted on a snippet of silver mirror card. I've been using a lot of offcuts recently, so I fancied cutting into new papers for this, but could I find something that matched the image? No way! So, in the end I resorted to using an offcut which was originally part of a Kanban kit bought quite a long while ago. To be honest, I nearly got rid of this ages ago because I couldn't really think how I would use it.
Because this already had some silver foiling on it, it would have been silly to try and add anything else, although I was sorely tempted. So this has ended up as a really CAS DL card:
