CHNC challenge 145: picture inspiration

It's time for a new challenge on my CHNC and for CHNC challenge 145 I've supplied this lovely picture of a painting by Loyd Fannin: Bethlehem Nativity:
Loyd Fannin's Bethlehem Nativity water colour painting
I'm asking everyone to take inspiration from this picture - use the colours or anything that the picture suggests - depicting some part of the nativity story perhaps.

For my card I've used paper and glittered elements from a My Paper Stash Library kit, on to a shaped card that I won for a challenge recently. I had to cut the paper around the card shape, then sanded lightly and inked with copic BV17, running this along the top of the card as well.
