All Ye Faithful.....

Hello Everyone: I have another Christmas card to share with you today, this time, it's to participate in the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge and in the Muse Christmas Visions challenge, here is my card.

This image is from a Stampin Up! set called All Ye Faithful and all of this images are simply beautiful. I stamped it onto Canson water color paper, die cut it and colored with SU markers and the aqua painter. I die cut some silver foil paper with a Spellbinders scalloped die set, I just wanted a bit of a pretty edge on this image. I cut a piece of Vellum and using one of the SU Gorgeous Grunge stamps, I stamped this one with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it in silver.
This image really doesn't need any more bling.
Here is a picture of the inside.
The sentiment is from the same set and it's stamped in Cherry Cobbler, the image at the bottom is from a retired Flourishes set called Christmas Candles. 
Here are the banners that inspired this card.

This is the Muse for this week.
Thank you so much for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
