Happy Birthday, Jesus Card

This week at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge, our twist is "Christmas." Perfect for this time of year, right? Hope you can join us this week! We'd love to see your creations!
Our wonderful sponsor this month is Sherri Baldy, creator of the popular "Besties" digi stamps. I'm using a fairy image from her etsy store on my card. You can check out her lovely digi stamps at:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/SherriBaldy
I decided to do a rocking card for this card base. I used my Silhouette Design Studio software and a cut file from the Silhouette Online Store to size up my card base before cutting it out on my Silhouette Portrait machine. I cut the base in red cardstock and the background in a green paper with holly on it. I added some red gemstones for the holly berries and to give the card a little embellishment.
For the image, I imported it to my Silhouette Design Studio software and sized it for my card. Then I drew a circle cut around it before printing it and cutting it out on my Silhouette Portrait. The sentiment was also a print and cut on my Portrait machine.
I colored the image with Copic and MEXPY markers as well as a Krylon gold leafing pen for the wings and a Sargent Liquid Metals pen for the stars in her hair. I did a decoupage of her skirt for a little extra detail and added a few gold stars using mini glue dots to adhere them. I adhered the image to the card base using foam squares. I also added a few gold stars to the inside and popped up the sentiment with foam squares.


I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
