absc003 - O Come Let Us Adore Him

Hello! Welcome to the latest Annabelle Stamps Sketch Challenge.
For my card this week I chose the stamp set, (Wise Men) from the new Annabelle Christmas line. I stamped baby Jesus with Versamark ink and embossed the image with Black EP and then watercolored it and punched it out with an Oval punch.
Then I layered this onto Sage Shadow cs and embossed the sentiment with the same black ep and the star with Gold Fire Opal EP and added a jewel to the center of the star. I added small scalloped photo corners and mounted this to Brushed Gold cs.

My card base is Always Artichoke cs layered with DP by DCWV Christmas line. I embossed a piece of the Always Artichoke with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder and added punched pieces of the brushed gold card stock. My embellishments are Dew Drops because I didn't have any of those fabulous sprinkles in the correct color I needed but do check out all the fantastic colors of the Sprinkles that are available on the Annabelle Stamps store.

Don't forget to visit the Annabelle Blog to see all the other DT members card and try the sketch out yourself.

Have a great weekend.
