Merry Monday Challenge 23


Now this was a hard one to photograph!  I really need to get my light box set up again.  The pewter embossing onto crumb cake cs and the midnight muse sponging on top of that caused me to shoot it from many different angles and places.

I used Come to Bethlehem for my images and sentiment.  When I first saw this sketch, I thought I would use either Christmas Lodge or Beautiful Season.  Then I scrolled down to look at the cards from the design team and saw that both had been used.  I really wanted to use a current stamp set, so this is what I came up with.  IRL this card is much prettier.

Thanks for stopping by!
