CHNC challenge 210

This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 210, using the lovely 'Away in a manger' digital image, including sentiment, kindly supplied by Deedee's digis, one of the four sponsors of the challenge. Please click on the challenge link to see the lovely prizes that can be won and I would love to see you joining in - please don't put your Christmas stash away, but start making your Christmas cards ready for the end of this year ... when it gets towards the end of the year you'll be so thankful that you did so.

I have three guest designers joining my for CHNC challenge 210, so it would be good to see what they have contributed and perhaps visit their blogs with some encouragement.

I used a digital background that I found free on the internet (can't remember where now, had it on my computer for quite some time), printed out and matted on to layers. The banner pieces at the top were made using Die-namics fishtail flag dies, using up pieces of card that matched the card blank. The large star is a piece of chipboard coloured with a spectrum noir, on to which I've matted a silver star and a lilac gem.
