Joyeux Noel

My card today is inspired by the photo inspiration at The Card Concept (CAS style).

I don't use many coloured card backgrounds, but I thought this Nativity scene in gold metallic foil card would look much better on black, so here it is. You know, shiny things are so difficult to photograph.

Playing at total of 6 challenges including
Allsorts Challenge - CAS Christmas
Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge - A/Goes with option twist of CAS
Less Is More - Metallics

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Have a great weekend!
