Night in Bethlehem for the Paper Players and Global Design Project

I have had so much fun playing with my Christmas supplies and creating lots of fun projects this week.  I am thrilled that the theme for Global Design Project 115 is Christmas Joy so more than one of my cards this week will be entered in that challenge.  I'd better read the rules and know just how many I am allowed to enter.  :) 

I am really liking creating black and white cards with just a pop of color.  I am thrilled that the Merry Music Specialty DSP is black and white just like you would expect a sheet of music would be.  Perhaps it's the musician in me that is loving the simplicity of the color scheme.  For this card, I feel like the black and white adds to the seriousness of the event it represents--Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem.  The songs listed on the strip of DSP are about that night.  I also feel like the pop of Cherry Cobbler hints at the celebration and joy of the occasion.

I even added a layer of Cherry Cobbler inside the card and stamped the Bethlehem cityscape along the bottom of the card interior.

I am entering this card in two challenges.  Make sure you head over to their pages to see the inspiration cards by the design teams and the other creative entries.
