The challenge has 4 choices, I picked the sketch for my card. The image is from Penny Black Slapstick and it's called In The Manger and it couldn't be sweeter. I just love the blissful look on this little Angel's face as he is contemplating Baby Jesus sleeping. I stamped the image onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter, I did add some highlights with Prismacolor pencils to the straw in the Manger, I sponged some Hello Honey and Baked Brown Sugar around.
Here is a close up of this sweet scene.
I die cut the star with a Sizzix die set that embosses the die cut too and, to follow the sketch, I added some gold thread, I didn't want to add ribbon or card stock and I did turned the sketch on the horizontal, I hope it's ok, it needed to be this way to fit the image better.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.
The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "Paperwhites" and the little candle is from a set from Power Poppy called Merry Littles.
This is the banner that inspired my card, I chose the sketch.
And this is the stamp set I used for my sentiment.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
