CAAB Mary and Drummer Boy Card

Hello everyone! I hope that your having a lovely day/evening.  I'm stopping by to share my Cute As A Button inspiration post for this month. I've decided to crated a Christmas Card using two Cute As A Button images called Mary Did You Know and Drummer Boy. I thought that these two images went together really well and can be found at the Cute As A Button Store.

I've coloured them both with a mixture of Spectrum Noir Markers and Rembrandt Aquarell Pencils and fussy cut them out. To create the sky background I've used Distress Inks like water colours. Then I added small die cut stars and a big heat embossed glittery gold star that I created. I also computer generated the sentiment. Mary is stood in the stable which I designed. To add texture I added straw/dried out grass to the roof.

There is currently a challenge going on at the Cute As A Button Challenge Blog and a Progressive Challenge on the Cute As A Button Facebook Group.
We'd love to see you come and join in the fun.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

Thank you for taking the time to read my post today.
Happy crafting everyone.
