Also today is
Deconstructing Sketch
day...BONUS!!!
 
This is Jen's amazing sketch for this week...
 


 And this is my card...



 Ok, I have to confess...I don't like this card! At ALL
I LOVE the image of Mary and Joseph and I LOVE Jen's
sketch... I just don't love how it all came together...You know
how you sometimes look at something you have made and thought
to yourself...hummm...I really could have done a better job! In fact, 
I am going to make another card with Jen's gorgeous sketch just to
do it justice!

 Anywhoo... The papers are from Kaiser Craft's December 25th 
6 1/2" paper pad. And the border punch is from EK Success.



I coloured Mary and Joseph in with my Prisma pencils.
 and the "O Holy Night" is just one of 3 sentiments that come with
the O Holy Night Nativity Set.



 Kimmie also is releasing a Nativity Sentiment Set...Which is
fantastic for sentiments inside and outside of your Christmas
cards...This is just one of 5 that comes in the set!!
