This card is for today's Sketch Challenge(SC253)! Thanks so much, Roxie!!! I used the bow pieces for my vertical pieces.

I am using ODBD Luke 2:11 and Christmas Verses sets.

For this card I am using soft suede and purely pomegranate with some ivory cardstock. I think purely pomegranate just screams Christmas and I actually still have some of the holiday dp left over to use for the background. I stamped my poinsettia and colored with copics, distressed with some ranger antique linen, and added a double layer at the top and bottom panels of MS border punch. I finished with my bow, gold curly que cording, and gold pearls. I paper pierced the background vertical panel at the top and bottom. I faux stitched with a permanent marker. All of the ivory panels were lightly sponged with the Ranger antique linen ink. The main panel just a little heavier with the ink.
