4 Crafty Chicks GDT card - Christmas in July

Today is my second week as July guest designer over at 4 Crafty Chicks. This card came out better than I imagined! Firstly I found and coloured this beautiful digi from Mo's Digital Pencil and die cut it and the sentiment using Spellbinders Nestabilities labels 32. I then distressed the edges using Tim Holtz Old Paper ink pad. The wise men are die cuts from Joanna Sheen's signature dies range which I simply cut from black card to give a silhouette effect. Finally I matted and layered on some Hot off the Press stared paper.

Paper - HOTP
Sentiment - Desert Diva
Image - In the manger from Mo's Digital Pencil coloured with ProMarkers
