Welcome Back for another card share with Sugar Creek Hollow Sensational Saturdays. Today my card is using the New Incredibly Beautiful Baby Jesus Image. When I first saw this image my jaw hit the floor, the detail is amazing.

I printed my image on watercolor paper- coloring the straw background with antique linen and scattered straw distress inks. I used colored pencil to add slight shading to the baby and blanket. I then rubbed the penciled areas to soften the lines and give more of a chalk look. I chose to use some basic grey capella and text pattern papers. I initially sprayed a doily with suede Glimmer mist and realized it was to dark for the result I was hoping for. I opted for the white doily distressed with vintage photo on the edges and some border punched cardstock. The scroll I simple cut out and edged with vintage photo ink. I added some branches to give the appearance of the image laying in a manger. (After I photographed the card I removed the branch awkwardly hanging down to the left of the scroll. It's fun looking at your pics and seeing the card in a different perspective.) After adding a few of my favorite Wild Orchid Roses and skeleton leaves I felt it needed something else. I tried several options but settled on some prima pearls and faux dots. I intend to use this image several times this Season for family Holiday cards.
So hurry on over to the Sugar Creek Hollow shoppe and get this image because it will be a show stopper for your Family Holiday Cards.
