O Holy Night with CAS Skech 216 for the Occasion of Christmas

I have been doing a lot of gift wrapping and Christmas card making around here this weekend, much of which you'll get to see on this blog in the next week or so.  :)  I chose CAS Colors & Sketches #216 for this sketch and decided to cut down a card from the Merry Little Christmas Memories & More kit.

I couldn't help but add a shiny gold star and some wink of stella to the card to add a bit of shine.  I added some of the cut strips on the inside of the card as well as the stamp of Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem on the inside of the card.

The occasion I have been diligently making cards for right now is Christmas, so that is the Occasion I am choosing to represent as I enter the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.  Looking at this card, you could use it for a variety of occasions like baptisms,  baby dedications, christenings, etc. if you change the stamps on the inside of the card.

Make sure you head over to CAS #253 and WWC149 to see the inspiration cards from the design teams and other creative entries.  It's always interesting to see what sketches and occasions everyone chose.
