Jesus is the reason for the season card - Peachy Keen Stamp challenge #40

Thought I would make a card for the Peachy Keen challenge.  This one is a sketch, which are always a little harder for me.  (I guess that is why they call it a challenge!!!)  So, here is the sketch:

This is the card I came up with:

The  Baby Jesus and manger are cut from the Paper Doll Dess Ups Cartridge and the Star is from the George cartridge. The stamped sentiment comes from My Pink Stamper.

I used Cranberry and Vanilla Bean Crinkle Ribbon for the candy cane border.  I punched tiny holes along the bottom of the card and then threaded the ribbon through the holes.  I started with Cranberry, then threaded Vanilla Bean through the next hole, Cranberry in the next hole, etc. until I got to the end of the row.  Then I taped a second piece of Cranberry ribbon on the back of the cardstock piece so I could tie the bow.  Clear as mud?  :-)

The face stamp is from Peachy Keen.  I used an older set (Funshine faces) for the eyes and nose and Everyday character faces for the itty bitty mouth. 

May your troubles be less and your blessings be more and nothing but happiness walk through your door! - Irish blessing  :-)
