This is my take on the challenge...



Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel.....





I just love this set.... When I think about it...Mary was so blessed to be able to care and nurture our Lord...what an awesome calling upon her life...

and to be able to say to  him to "Don`t slam the door Jesus!... Where you born in a barn?"....lol

This set is such a joy to work with...I tried to create a manger scene....

Jan, My first thought was about the beautiful blue bow and the halo over the Christ Child's head.
It was as if arms were wrapped around him. The sentiment is timeless. All your lovey details really make this a very remarkable card. We are sso thankful you linked with us at WAW.
