Rustic Nativity

Another Christmas card for the box!
I die cut the stable and Holy Family out of Birch Bark Wrapping paper that I bought last Christmas season at Pier 1 Imports (LOVE THIS PAPER!!).  I embossed the images in black and layered them onto a cream Bazzill card base using foam dots.  I die cut the big star our of gold paper and added 3 little wooden stars.  The Nativity stamps and  Holy Couple, barn and star dies are from Simon Says Stamp.

I'm linking my card to:
and I made it rustic for the Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers where we were to be inspired by the Vineyard Market web site - I was inspired by this Nativity.
Stamps:  Nativity - Simon Says Stamp, For Unto You - Wordsworth
Paper:  Cream Bazzill, Gold - DCWV Paper Pad, Birch Bark Wrapping Paper - Pier 1
Ink: Versamark, Hero Hues Black
Accessories:  Wow Black Embossing Powder, Holy Couple and Barn Dies - Simon Says Stamp, wood veneer stars - The Paper Studio/Hobby Lobby, foam dots, Tombow Glue.
