Nativity Angels

Good Morning everyone and  Happy Thursday . I'm back today with a card to launch another of the 12 Weeks of Christmas Challenges over at Crafty Ribbons Challenge The theme this week is Cultural Christmas so you need to get out all those traditional Christmas goodies for this one .
For my Design Team card I used the lovely Nativity Angels stamp that I've had for several years from Lili Of The Valley.

The challenge runs for two weeks so I hope you find time to play along, We only have one more 12 weeks of Christmas challenge to go..
I hope you are all enjoying a good week and  getting on with your Christmas preparations I love making cards but hate writing them out so this is my job for the next few days when time permits.
 I am having some Dental Surgery today so not looking forward to that but as they say pride is painful. I'll have some stitches for a week and will get them out on the 17th so just in time for my Christmas Dinner !! Love and  hugs Carole x

I'm entering this into The Ribbon Girl Challenge Anything Goes

Such a pretty card Carol, the soft neutral colours work really well with the sweet image ad embellishments.

Good luck today, I have designated 2015 as the year of all things dental, seem to have spent a good few hours in the chair and felt a bit like a guinea pig at times so like your analogy.
