Christmas family

I'm behind with the challenges on facebook Sunday's with Santa - last week's theme was 'family', so I'm featuring the most special family at Christmas with the nativity digital image kindly supplied by Digi Doodle Shop, who are sponsoring my challenge this week, so this is another card for my CHNC challnge 69: lots of layers (there aren't 'lots' but there are at least three). I coloured the image lightly with copics.

I've followed the sketch for Creative craft for this fortnight (just getting my entry in at the last minute):

Colours are for Guylou's crazy cat lady colour challenge where this inspiration picture was given and we were asked to make a project using the color scheme of a Sealpoint Siamese, meaning brown, cream (or off white) and light blue (that's the eyes):

The My mind's eye Christmas glitter book papers are offcuts, so this is another opportunity to go into the playground at Pixie's craft snippets 17.

The ribbons on the right hand edge are adhesive backed DCWV, so they extend into the inside of the card. This is for the Crafty pad 167: live on the edge.

There are 3 brads from The Works, which is good for Willow sketchie this week.

This is also for:

Do you stack up 68: stripes
House of Gilli 32: oh pretty - ribbon and sparkles (the papers are more glittery than they look here)
ABC Christmas: H for hardware - metal - brads
