ODBDSLC #177 - Inspired by a Song or Music

Happy Tuesday everyone!! The Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge is to create a card inspired by a song or music, please join us here for all of the details.

My card speaks for itself on which song I chose, this set couldn't be more perfect!! I really wanted to use an unusual Christmas color for this beautiful nativity and thought I would add just a touch of lavendar, ok, maybe a lot!! This precious holy family was heat embossed and watercolored with distress markers for a pastel look, I think I'm having a 90's flashback because I'm starting to love pastels again!

Our Daily Bread Stamps: Joy to the World stamp set.

Other Supplies: Spellbinder dies, embossing folders, foam tape, distress markers, water pen.

Check out the blogs of my talented designer friends for more inspiration.
