O come let us adore Him

Well I've done no end of Santa's so it was about time I did a card depicting the reason why we celebrate Christmas...

1. Copper Stardream pearlescent card
2. DP is a small square picture I found on the web. Tiled it together in my graphics program to make a bigger picture then printed onto plain white card.
3. I didn't have any fancy copper corner peel offs so I made my own up by layering two different widths of border peel offs, mitred the ends and the corners and then cut some Cuttlebug decorative corners using copper Mirri card but only used the waste parts (scroll and teardrop) to add a bit more interest.
4. The main picture I've had for a while was mounted first on to silk copper Mirri card then onto ordinary copper Mirri card, which was then double edged with thin copper border peel offs.
5. The sentiment is computer generated, mounted onto the same Mirri card and again edged with peel offs.
I wanted to get a Victorian Gothic look, but without it being to over ornate.
Thanks for looking
