Quick Nativity

I made this before Christmas but didn't have time to post.  I realized as I was sending out my Christmas cards I had not made any religous cards this year.  I have family members who are offended if they receive non-religous cards so I needed to whip some up in a hurry.  I realize that it would not be snowing in Bethlehem but I love this paper and the colour scheme.  I'm hoping my relatives will forgive me.  If I was to make this card again, I'd do the embossing in silver.  I still like how elegant it looked in simple embossing.  I'm wondering what the image would look coloured on kraft.  But not this week.  I'm all Christmased out.
