Quite literally the first Christmas


Over at Crafty Ribbons where our challenges are now fortnightly we have a new challenge of First Christmas. I have taken this very literally and here is my card using the new Bethlehem image and sentiment stamps from Stamposaurus. The image has been coloured with Copics and I have also used Sakura pens for the stitching. The papers are First Edition Silent Night. The ribbon is from a previous Christmas collection but you can see all the new Christmas ribbons here. A simple card to highlight the lovely image.
