Bah Humbug Challenge 28

It is my 4th week as Guest Designer for Bah Humbug and this was the trickiest so far. The Challenge this week was 'A Christmas Scene' and as soon as I saw this I thought of the Manger scene with Mary and Joseph in the stable. I have got a Penny Black stamp which fits this theme and made 2 cards but for some unknown reason I just couldn't get them to look like what I imagined. So finally after binning loads of card I totally changed my mind and used these cardboard die cuts that I won in another Christmas Challenge.

This really took me out of my comfort zone, most of my cards are made using stamped or digi images and coloured in but I do quite like it, especially the gold glittery christmas tree.  Sorry I don't know the make of the diecuts, but if I had to guess I would probably say K & Co as there was some K & Co stickers in my prize win.

Good morning Debs - sorry some of your early attempts ended in the bin. That's where a lot of my cards go to but it's worth all the work when you end with such a lovely card. Isn't that scene gorgeous.
A real beauty.

Hi again Debs - just popped in to say don't worry you're not loosing the plot. I've just added that card to Bah! Humbug! - Max wanted me to do a tutorial so I thought on the acetate cards so I thought seeing as it was a scene I might as well add to our Christmas blog too.
Thanks for your lovely comments.

Hi Debs ... I would never have guessed you had struggled even a little bit with this challenge because the finished result is gorgeous.
I love the vintage image and how you have brought out the gold with the die cut tree. Fabulous!

Hi Debs - Such a beautiful vintage Christmas image and the embossed dots are the perfect snowy backdrop for the scene. The die-cuts are gorgeous too!
