The Reason for Christmas

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge has a challenge this week called "The Reason for Christmas".  I automatically thought of a Nativity Scene when I heard what the challenge was.  I found this nativity scene at The Stamping Boutique , one of our sponsors this week. 

I coloured my card with Copic Markers, glitter pen and a gold leafing pen and then cut out the image and layered it on several paper in the colour of my image. 

Thank you for stopping to take a look.  


I am entering this card in the following challenges:
