Christmas in July - Sketch challenge at Catch the bug

Last year I participated at the challenge at Catch the bug "Christmas in July" and it was really helpful to start with my Christmas cards, so this year I am planning to join again! This is my second entry for this week's challenge at Catch the bug.

I used this AKV image, Joseph, Mary and baby. I colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils.  I distressed the edges with a green ink pad.

I gave some volume to the crib with foami tape, I like the effect :)

I used two different dp, the red one is a Oriental trading and the green one is a Printer Soyuz, I also used some red texturized cardstock.

As embellishments I only used silver stars in two sizes.

Hope you like this card :)
