O Holy Night

I have been under the weather for a few days but am finally better and able to make a card.  I made a center step card with a nativity image I cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  I used a pale lt. blue DSP from a Martha Stewart pad so it would look like the night sky.  The large star was part of the image and I added some sparkle with a clear glitter pen.  The tiny stars were stamped by inking just the star on the  O in the sentiment, which is an older stamp from Michael's dollar bin.  I thought it fit the image perfectly.  The swirls were cut with MFT Formal Flourish die.  All the mats are SU Basic Black and the card base is MFT Smooth White.  I added Recollections Enamel Dots on the sentiment panel.

Here is a photo of the inside as I used a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Christmas Blessings and I am entering my card in the ODBD "Anything Holiday" challenge.  I added a small strip of the blue DSP & black CS to the inside panel.

I am also entering my card at Christmas Card Challenge - Faith Based challenge.
