Magnolia Nativity

Good Evening! I finally have a card to show you after days and days of nothing .. I got my new Magnolia nativity stamps the other day and have been colouring to my hearts content in the living room. However, making a card means going up to the attic and I have not been feeling well but today I managed to drag myself up there!

I want this whole range, they are adorable!! Here I have used Holy Edwin, Holy Tilda with baby and Holy House. I stamped them in brown Memento and I love the effect. I normally stamp in black but this looks so much softer and then coloured with ProMarkers. The backing paper is from Magnolia and the letters are Papermania. I printed out my own sentiments, which says 'That First Christmas'. All is backed onto kraft and tinted around the edges with Tea Dye distress ink. The snowflakes were punched from the same backing paper with my Martha Stewart snowflake punch and I added some pearls and cheesecloth to embellish.

I would like to enter it into the following challenges:
Stamping Sensations - Traditional Christmas
2 Sisters - Pastel Christmas
Tilda's Town - Winter Weather

Thanks for stopping by!
