First Christmas card for 2018

QKR Stampede Challenge 302
Anything goes



Once again, the QKR Stampede weekly challenge is anything goes.  Come join us for a chance to win some of the great images available at their shop.  My choice this week is "Bethlehem with Verse",   I am always looking for something to express the celebration of the first Christmas - as well as an image I can use for multiple fairly quick cards.  I selected the QKR Stampede image "Bethlehem with verse" as well as one of several Merry Christmas sentiments found in the QKR/Eureka shop - in a variety of fonts.  We hope you join the fun - you may enter as many as 3 times before 6 p.m. on Thursday.  
To complete the card I used red cs dry embossed with stars (Cuttlebug), a gold gift bag recycled for the frame,  and a piece of gold twine.  (Note:  the metallic gold does not look gold here on the screen, and the stars are much more visible IRL.)
