TIDINGS OF COMFORT {Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge}

TIDINGS of COMFORT and JOY

A lovely challenge is currently running over at Fresh Brewed Designs which is THREE PATTERNED PAPERS OR MORE. I have used this beautiful image called NATIVITY, which you can purchase here. Also visit Fresh Brewed Designs' Facebook Page to join in all the fun and surprises, here.

The image has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks.  The folded corners have been created with a scallop square punch. The design papers and brads are from my stash. The crochet embellishments have been made for me by a very dear friend. The sentiment is from PAULETTE {CREATE WITH TLC}.  

I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
