A Child Is Born

I made my card using Swiss Pixies "Baby Jesus and Angel" from All That Scraps.  This is the first time I have inked this sweet image up even though I have had it for quite awhile.  I stamped her on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copics and Promarkers.  I added Sakura Clear Glitter pen to her wings and halo.  It shows up better in the 2nd photo although the colors are off.   I cut the image out with MFT Circle Stax dies and inked the edges while still in the die.  The mats are SU Basic Black and the DSP is from Echo Park's Very Merry Chirstmas 6x6 pad.  The ribbon is from a Christmas spool from Michael's.
My card is for  Merry Monday #67 sketch challenge at Lesley's Always Playing With Paper blog.
and also for the challenge at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long here.
