CHNC challenge 16: sing song

It's Saturday again and time for another challenge on my Craftyhazelnut's Christmas blog - your can find all the details of the challenge here - hopefully you'll be able to join in with a Christmas card inspired by a song or a carol.

My card is based on 'Away in a manger' using the Penny Black 'the manger' stamp coloured with copics - I kept the colours fairly subtle to tone with the My Mind's Eye papers from the Christmas Glitter book. These already have a distressed look, but I further distressed edges, first with spiced marmalade DI and then fired brick. The inner shape is a nestie, so I'm linking this for Jingle Belles challenge to use die cuts, - their challenge this time is 'cross-pollinated' with Betty Bee's Buzzing honeybee challenge, so I'm linking there too.

I'm linking this for:
