Miracle of Christmas Card

This came out so wonderful, I just wish that the colors would have shown up better.  I made it following one of sketches this week at RAQs Challenge on the Circut message board, and boy lining up all those squares truly was a challenge.
The blue background star paper was from a Winter stack that I got at Wal-Mart a couple of years ago.  I don't know about your but the three Wal-Marts in my area really seem to be scaling down there scrapbooking area.  Well I cut the star paper into 1 1/2 inch squares.  I tired my best to get them straight and spaced the same, I did OK for the most part.  The center scalloped ovals were cut from A Child's Year cartridge and measure about 3 1/2 inches.  The papers are so pretty the center is actually a very very dark blue pearlescent metallic that I get from Paper and More and so it the lighter blue behind it.  They have fabulous papers, they are so pretty, try their sample packs they ship for just a $1 and super fast.  Well the imagine is the center is from an older Stampin Up Christmas set that I stamped and embossed with a pearl embossing powder.  The sentiment on the bottom is from that Stampin Up set.
I pop dotted each layer.  Someone on the message board said that with the paper I used it made it look like a night sky window looking outside.    And I also did the inside very simply.
Thanks for stopping by and would love it if you left a comment.  I love reading what everyone has to say.
