This morning I am back with a card for the Christmas Card Club Challenge. Today's choice was made by Asha and the remit was "Oh Carol - your favourite carol or festive tune". The carol I have chosen to depict is "Away in A Manger". It isn't actually my favourite - although I do love it.

Rather a lot of pictures I'm afraid, but I tried to show the card from each side, and unfortunately the sun reflected off the mirri card.
My closed card is 6" x 6 ". The image and sentiment I have used are digi stamps from Pink Gem Designs, coloured with Promarkers and diecut with SB Lacy Circles. I have made a gate fold card which I haven't done for ages so it made a nice change. I used Centura Pearl and gold mirri card. I used the Swiss Dots folder from Cuttlebug for the sides of the gate fold. After diecutting the flowers and leaves I added lots of glitter. The label was die cut from SB Fancy Tags. Gold gem stones finished off the front of the card. I don't always decorate the inside of my cards unless it's for a special occasion but I made a feature inside this one because of the gate fold effect.
I am now looking forward to visiting all your blogs again and seeing what everybody has been up to during my absence!!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
