SSS Christmas Card using artist Morgan Fitzsimons' "Christmas"

Happy Monday Everyone!  Hope this week is starting well for all of you.  I've had a few days off of work and still I feel like the days flew! Seems like things go in fast motion once the holidays start.  I still have a bunch of Christmas cards to make so I'd better get "scrappin"! :)

So here is a card I've made for Scrapbook Stamp Society using an image by artist, Morgan Fitzsimons called  "Christmas"

I had so much fun making this card and coloring up this beautiful image! It really makes me think of the "True Christmas" theme and what it's all about.  I wanted to stick with the traditional Christmas colors of Red and Green but I also wanted to add a little blue to match Mary's clothing.  I love the paper collection I used for this card. It matched everything so well!  This collection is called "Holiday Style" by October Afternoon.  Such gorgeous papers!  I edged all the papers using Tim Holtz "Frayed Burlap".  The sentiment is from a Spellbinder's Christmas stamp set.  The cute poinsettias are from Jolee's.  I wanted to keep the card simple to focus more on this beautiful image.  I hope you all like my card and have a wonderful rest of the week!
