A Child is Born

I finally managed to make another Christmas card!  It's been a while, so I'm glad I got the chance to just play and make one.  I was pushed a little by a challenge to create something with your UFO's (unfinished objects).  I've had this adorable image sitting on my desk (colored even) for a loooooong time!  I'd say it's been printed out for several years.  Part of the problem is that I had cut a different image from the same sheet of paper and the cut was too close to this image making it impossible to die cut any shape around it.  So, I finally decided to fussy cut around the image and add it to a die cut circle. I popped it up with foam tape for some added dimension.
The color combo is a little brighter than I would normally use with an image like this, but I do like how it turned out.

Supplies:
Stamps: A Day For Daisies "A Sign I Give" digi; Verve "Richly Blessed" sentiment and "Beyond Measure" greenery (I added three little red nuvo drops to the sprig to look like berries)
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large" and "Labels 5"
