Simple Manger

Hello, All!  Today begins a new challenge from Love to Scrap! Challenge Blog.  For the next two weeks the challenge is Anything Goes.  (I know you all love those!)  We have three fabulous sponsors:
Bugaboo Digi Stamps
Prize: 7 images of the winner's choice

Sparkle N Sprinkle
Prize: Image(s) of choice to winner up to $15 value from the SNS Exclusive Line 

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More
Prize: 3 images of the winner's choice

I chose to use this fabulous image from Robyn's Fetish.  I have had it for quite a while and hadn't had a chance to use it yet.  So, since they were one of our sponsors, it was the perfect time to color it up!
I know it is only the middle of May, but it is never too soon to get started on those Christmas cards.  I've been making them throughout the year for the past several years, and it definitely cuts down the stress of getting them all finished in time to get them sent out for Christmas.  Now, head on over to the LTSCB to see the inspiration from the rest of the DT.

Challenges:
Crafting Musketeers #25--use a die cut
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper--anything goes with patterned paper
Craft-Dee BowZ--anything goes with patterned paper
Chalk N Stock--anything goes with chalk (I used chalk to create the glow of the star and the "halo")
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #229--use some of your favorite things (ribbon, rhinestones and Christmas images!)
Come And Get It Challenge--ribbon & bling

Supplies:
Stamps: Robyn's Fetish "Manger"
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 13"; Spellbinders "A2 Matting Basics, rectangle"
Papers: American Crafts "Jolly"
PTI Aqua Mist card stock and ribbon
