March Rudolph Day

Hello everyone. Although I have another Christmas card to show you, I'll start by wishing you all a Happy Easter, I hope you enjoy the holiday weekend whatever you are doing.
My card is for the Rudolph Day Challenge at Scraps of Life by Scrappymo. I'm a bit late again but there are still a couple of days left to enter.
The stamps I've used are by Heartfelt Creations. I stamped the main image with Memento black ink and coloured the baby and the manger with Promarkers. I used Derwent Coloursoft pencils to add shading around the scroll and then coloured the background with Distress Inks and a blending tool. Having used my TH stamping platform to stamp with, the stamp was still in place for me to overstamp the star with Versamark ink and emboss it with WOW Brass Sparkle embossing powder. I mounted the trimmed image onto some dark gold glitter card and backed it with a square of funky foam to give it a little dimension when added to the card. The base card is  an ivory 15cm square and I used the stamping platform again to position the corner stamps and coloured them with Promarkers and a gold gel pen. This was quite an easy card to make and I made another three to help build my Christmas Card stash.
