All is bright

   MKH is sponsoring this week's challenge at Creative Corner the theme of which is retro/vintage Christmas.
   The background nativity scene was printed using Once Upon A Christmas CD ROM from Creative Crafting World.
   The left hand border was made using the digi image Christmas candle from MHK Designs. I coloured the candles and greenery using Promarkers, the baubles using Sakura gel pens, used liquid pearls for the berries on the foliage and foiled the lines around the flames. After using distress ink on the background I attached it to the nativity scene and wrapped narrow ribbon along the border edge before matting the whole onto cream card. I then attached the sentiment, also from MHK, and outlined the edges using black peel off strips.
