Mary and Child

Happy June!  I can't believe it is here already!  Since it is a new month, it is time for another challenge from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  As always, we are a month-long,  Anything (Christmas-related) Goes challenge and our Sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps.
Here is my card using the adorable "Mary and Child" image:
I love it when I get to make a Christmas card that celebrates the true meaning of Christmas, and this image is really so cute!  I hope you will get a chance to play along with us this month.  It is time to get working on your Christmas card stash if you haven't already!
I had created the strip of patterned paper stripes down the side a while ago when I was working hard to use up some of my scraps.  Adhering them like that really gives a fun touch!  It adds a pop (or pops) of color without having to have a strip of paper actually large enough to fit the space.

Supplies:
Stamps: Bugaboo Stamps "Mary and Child" digi stamp; Verve "Peace on Earth" sentiment
Dies/embossing folders: Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large"; Darice Woodgrain embossing folder
