Indigo Nativity

I have another Christmas card to share with you.  I really love this stamp.  It is a Nativity scene and shows the meaning of Christmas.  My mother collects Nativities.  I think that she is now up to about 20.  some are single pieces that have Joseph, Mary and Baby Jesus and some are very elaborate with camels, donkeys, angels, trees and hanging stars.  I just love looking at each of her Nativities.  I hope that this card will inspire the same reaction for the recipient.

Paper:  Smoky Slate (#131202), Whisper White (#100730) and Flowerpot (#133698)

This reminds me of those fabulously skilled 'papercuts' - it's a great look and you chose the perfect ink colour for it. Love the twine too. Thanks a lot for joining in with my Festive 48.
