Come to Bethlehem - CTD #222

I ran out of Christmas cards to send out to friends and family!  I am working on whipping up some cute Christmas cards and enter a few challenges at the same time.  When I saw the color combination at the Color Throwdown, I knew immediately that I wanted to use the Come to Bethlehem stamp set.  I have had it for a while now but never broke it in.

I didn't have these exact colors so I used Bordering Blue, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point.  I really like my focal point with the sponged colors and the embossed image.  I messed around with the card and I settled for this.  I am not in love with it but it works...

Stamp: Come to Bethlehem (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Bordering Blue, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point (Stampin' Up!)
Cardstock: Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black (Stampin' Up!)
Embossing Powder: Midnight Black (Stampendous)
Tools: Embossing Heat Tool
