Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 254

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 254 - Christmas in July

Here's my card for the design team.

I started this card by using a Christmas embossing folder on the red cardstock. I found a pretty designer paper with some gold in it and layered both on a glossy gold piece, adding a strip along the top of the pattern. Naturally I needed a pretty gold sparkly ribbon/bow. I took my cute little baby, Jesus, and colored Him with Copic markers, adding a sparkle pen to the star. I used a gold leafing pen to edge the panel and mounted it to add dimension. Boom done! :-)

Our sponsor for this challenge is
Bugaboo Digi Stamps

Still time to get involved with the current challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.
