Christmas card using plank background, a flagged strip and a watercoloured nativity image

This is the last Christmas card I made for my February catch up on my commitment to make some cards every month so I will have what I need when December comes around. 
The background was sitting on my desk since my January card making session.  I created a red card to coordinate with the red envelope I had chosen.  I adhered the black and white wood gift wrap to it and went looking for an image that would work with it.  I found this little nativity which I thought would be good.  I watercoloured it to coordinate and then layered it with green cardstock.  I found the little greeting in my stash and layered it with the same green.  Once I was putting my card together I decided it needed a flagged strip of red behind the image so I added it before placing my other elements with 3D foam tape.  Still thinking it needed "a bit of something" I added three little red circle punchies above the greeting.  That was better!!!!!!  Glad to have caught up on my Christmas cards and will have see about getting my March ones done soon!!!!!!            Therese
