Inkspirational Challenge #305 - Celebrate: Nativity

 Inkspirational Challenge #305 has just posted! 

and here is the DT card I made for the challenge.  I am celebrating the birth of Jesus with my card.

I bought this beautiful Nativity Triptych from Tutti Designs at least two seasons ago and this is the first time I pulled it out to use it. I love this beautiful scene!

I die cut the triptych out of metallic gold and then cut out a panel of black with it. I inserted the gold die cut into opening in the black panel.

I created my background using the Smooshing with Cling Wrap technique.
I recently did a post with The Group of Seven Cardmakers on this technique. Click here if you are interested in seeing my blog post on the technique.

So how do you interpret Celebrate?
We hope you will link up your card so we can see it over at Inkspirational!
You have until 12/29!

This is a beautiful Nativity die, Julia, and a perfect sentiment that says it perfectly! Thank you for the beautiful Christmas card! All that foliage on the splattered background and die cut basket make for a beautiful card!
