The Christ Child

I discovered the Dirty Dozen Christmas (Sketch) Challenges on SCS this year and have enjoyed making a card each month. Yes, I know (now) that these challenges have been going on for ten years, but I had no clue. Sometimes I think I have my head in the sand. But I digress. This being May, it's my fifth time to participate.


I love the stamp set I used and the sketch. That being said, I'm not too happy with my card. It just seems so plain. Odd for me to say that because I mostly make very simple cards with not much embellishment, but this one needs more. I'm not sure what it needs more of, but something.



Maybe I need to make this one of those cards that you start with a simple design and then make it better. I'll think on it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Stamp Set: Unity Blessed Baby stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers

Papers: Cougar 110# White and SU Cinnamon Cider CS and DP from my scrap file

Dies: MFT Stitched Rectangle and Spellbinders Ovals

Embellishments: Michael's Rhinestone and Ribbon from an unknown vendor

  2. Beautifully made. I think it is perfect the way it is, but if you want to add something, I would add sparkle to the star. A rhinestone, or Wink of Stella glitter maybe. I do love it as is. TFS!

  3. What a gorgeous card Jeanette - my reaction was to add three rhinestones to the ribbon on each side of the image??? Just my pennyworth.
    Stay safe
