B is for Baby Jesus

This card features two recently acquired dies.  The sentiment is cut from an ornate circle die.  I cut a small piece of yellow cs to fit behind the stable roof for the star.  The BG is a Cuttlebug star folder.  I cut the oval opening to frame the manger scene.
I am a bit frustrated because the red in the photo is not the red IRL, which is a bit darker and more subdued in appearance.

Your two new dies are wonderful Dorothy. I love the nativity scene, particularly the gorgeous star over the manager. I like how you added the piece of yellow cardstock behind the cut to really help it stand out. The big "Merry Christmas" sentiment is fabulous, what a lovely, delicate die. Great job!
Cheers,
Beccy

A really striking and dramatic card. The yellow star is a good idea.
Thanks for playing along at Christmas Card Throwdown.
