Noel - Ooh La La Creations Reflections Challenge

Hello Everyone, I'm here with the next Fortnight Challenge with  Ooh La La Creations.
Our theme this challenge is Reflections.  Some of us were a bit stuck but really the definition is both literal and figurative, it can be a scene with a reflection in it, a mirror image of some sort or more figuratively an image that makes you reflect on an idea.  Well I love figurative language, writings and ideas so I chose the latter, with Christmas around the corner a Nativity Scene was a natural fit for me!  Gods Son was born into the world on Christmas, proclaiming His everlasting and  gracious love for us, that He would become the Savior for all of mankind.  I try not to loose that idea during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.  I always try to remember that these "holiday's" are truely "Holy-Days," and the Nativity is the perfect imagery to reflect on that truth.

 I used an image from the Yuletide Wishes CD from Ooh La La Creations.

 Here is the interior...unfortunately my Spellbinder oval die was just a tad misplaced, it says "no bow"

 a close up of the beautiful angel and baby Jesus

a closer look at some fussy cutting of a banner on the top of Glitz "Joyeux Noel" design paper.

If you want to know anything else about how I created this, please email me.
