Good Sunday afternoon bloggers!  I trust all is well in your neck of the woods, as it is in mine at the moment.  I'd like to share this Christmas card with you today:
I made this specifically for the One Layer Christmas Card challenge, which is asking for an optional "family" twist:
And as the challenge graphic suggests, what better family than the Holy Family to showcase?  My image is a Silhouette cut file that I printed out, cut a circle mask for, and inked with Mustard Seed distress ink.  I wasn't intending for my "glow" to be so dark, but it is what it is.  The sentiment comes from the Stampendous Nativity Christmas set, and I stamped it with a Studio G glitter ink that matched pretty well.  I added some clear Wink of Stella pen to the Holy Family and the Star of Bethlehem above the manger, but of course that isn't visible in the pic.
Challenges I'm adding this to:
One Layer Christmas #17:  Anything goes with optional "family" twist
CSAYL #55:  Anything goes
Winter Wonderland:  Add a sentiment
The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up #9:  Anything goes with optional "Christmas tree" twist
CHNC #245:  T'was the Night Before Christmas
Thanks for stopping by again!  Take care!
