Very nice Sketch Challenge today. Decided to be a bit of a rebel and go a bit different than the exact sketch :/. Hope you can still see the inspiration of the actual sketch. Here's a link to the challenge...
I used "Reason to Smile" to halo the Christ Child. It looks so fabulous IRL. I hope you can see how great it looks behind the babe image. Ann Clemmer used this technique with the Christmas Deer. I couldn't wait to try it with First Christmas.
I added a "Twisted Corner Bookmark" to my card (which is why I offset the sketch a bit... to make room for the bookmark. ) This may look like any other corner bookmark but when you check out how THIS ONE is actually folded... you will be amazed. Check out how to make the "Twisted Corner Bookmark" here...

Cool Christmas card you rebel you! Your eb bg is fun and I can see that lovely halo..so pretty. Topping it off with that fabulous twisted bookmark (had to check that out on your link...I"ll be borrowing that idea) really makes this so unique!
