A child is born!!

Hello all,
Boy do these Fridays come round quick or what??  But oh I'm soooo glad they do because it means it's Freebie day at Digital Delights.  Hop on over to Digital Delights and click on the link for either SNR or Paper Craft Plant to pick up your Freebie Friday image.  This week Wendy has continued on the Christmas theme - and come up with this adorable image:

I just love this image, so beautiful!  Now I felt a bit bad about not having time to create a card with last week's freebie so I am more organised this week and here is the card I have come up with:
The backing papers are from a Christmas stack I bought several years ago and which had fallen to the bottom of my craft stash (shame on me!) the ribbon down the middle I think I recycled from a gift box a couple of years ago.  The sentiment is from a Readicut multipack and the gold bow is from my stash.  I have coloured the image using Distress Inks and watercolour pencils (although this time I used the paintbrush method rather than pencil to paper) and then chalked the background.  The star is glittered onto glue and the "rays" are gold stickles glue.  Here is a close up of the image for you:

I have used the sketch over at Delightful Sketches and will enter this card for their sketch challenge.
So hop on over to Digital Delights and pick up your "A Child is Born" freebie today!
