Every Blessing with CASE-ing Christmas

Hello Crafters,

Wow, I can't believe it is already the beginning of October.  Time has been moving quickly lately.  It is time for another CASE-ing Christmas post.  Here is my take on Asha's card.
I chose to work with the colors as inspiration by using Night of Navy, Soft Sky and Gold foil and embossing.  Instead of a church I chose to use a symbol of the Magic of Season by using a scene of shepherds looking at the Christmas star.  I also chose to use the Allegro embossing folder by Cuttlebug to give the illusion of the Hallelujah chorus.  I had this card idea bouncing around in my head for weeks and it came out just as I had envisioned ... 'I love it when a plan comes together!'  Now here is Asha's card we were to CASE.

Now it is your turn to come up with a card CASE-ing Asha's lovely card.  Be sure and get your entry in by October 23rd to be included in our 'Christmas' drawing on October 25th.

The simple layers and the positioning of the shepherds really puts the focus on the shining star. Thanks for sharing your elegant card with us at CC&S!

Such a great CAS card even though you used multiple layers. The gold against the blue is so striking!

Your golden nativity scene really stands out against the blue backdrop. Lovely use of our colours at CC&S. Stef x
