Here is one of my Magnolia Nativity cards which I just adore.

I have most of the Nativity collection but "Jacob" was my latest purchase a real must have just perfect. This is my take on a masked collection I saw on Debbie dolphins blog which ouzes inspiration I love her work and have followed her for years

This card was ordered by my sil for my niece Kerry I always have free hand on her orders cause luckily she loves everything I have made for her so far.

I have masked tilda as one of the three kings with Jacob and a palm tree managed this in one go which was a bonus.

I coloured Tilda with a lovely blue so went with this as my colour combo which I think looks lush.

Lovely side view which shows you my layered die cuts which where finished off with stickles.

Coloured as always with my pro markers.

As you can see I have used lots of different dies.

Added gems to the centres of my poinsettia flowers and lots of stickles.

Well thanks for looking I hope you love it as much as I do.
