Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: A Child is Born

It's time for a new challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Clearly Christmas

photo source:

Our sponsor for this challenge is Winnie & Walter and each member of the design team received a stamp set with which to work.  The LEAD participant in our Clearly Christmas challenge will win a $30 gift code from Winnie & Walter!

I am playing with Happy Christmas - a lovely set full of a variety of Christmas images, including this Christian image but also Santa, reindeer, poinsettia, holly and more - plus a huge variety of sentiments.  My manger scene also has a halo that you can stamp in a different color, but I love the look of these sparkles from Big Bang Confetti.

The entire back panel of this card is glittered to capture the sparkle and shine of the inspiration photo.  I love sparkle on my Christmas cards but it wreaks havoc on the photos.  Not only is it hard to see the sparkle but I find it impossible to truly focus and get a crisp picture.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you create!
