Silver Embossed Nativity

Marion's Inspiring Card
Such a pretty card by Marion for the Muse challenge this week. I was inspired to make a window card, although mine does not go through to the inside. My window frames the PTI nativity image from Star of Wonder-- silver embossed. I used VersaMagic Night Sky to ink the sentiment from the same set. The card front is covered with random stamping of an old star image done with a soft Brilliance silver ink. This card is for my co-worker who just participated in a Christmas play that ran 3 nights at her church. She said she's going to hire me to make her Christmas cards next year. I can tell you I won't be volunteering to do window cards as it takes me forever to line things up--LOL! Thanks for stopping by during this busy holiday season.
