Oh Bethlehem

This is one of my favorite stamp sets. I bought it after it had retired however, I still use it all the time. It is so much easier to make a great Christmas card when you have a beautiful stamp set like Come to Bethlehem. For this card I was challenged by As You See It Challenge #32, Christmas All Year Long #6 non square card and Stampin' for the Weekend's theme challenge of "favorite stamp set;" so I combined these three challenges to make a shiny gold CAS Christmas card. I punched out a few circles from gold envelope liners from the latest paper pumpkin kit and the star I drew by hand, cut out and covered in glitter,  so pretty and sparkly.

Here is a close up on the details of the card.
Here is the sketch I used for the card.

Thanks for stopping by
