A Nativity Accordian Saga

I have had this idea to make a card with a nativity scene on it for a while. The accordion die designed by Karen Burniston seemed the perfect solution to making the scene. As I posted previously that die is like getting hold of gold plated rocking horse poo, when I finally got hold of it there was no free time for me. I've had about 6 months of only having to go and work away occasionally, as soon as the die arrives I am away loads. I swear there is a conspiracy against me using it.
So it arrives and I go to stamp my nativity images AAAAGGGGH! they were too big for the space. So I was forced, yes you read that correctly I HAD to go and buy those lovely Lili of the Valley stamps I have been admiring for ages. Luckily I had got some money in my Paypal account from selling some craft items on eBay. I was definitely not disappointed with them when they arrived, they are absolutely gorgeous, tooooo cute.
Finally the card was made and I love it, I made it quite quickly. I think I was dizzy with the excitement of having some spare time, but I will be making some more and taking my time over them.
 One thing these cards are really hard to photograph, in real life it looks stunning. Here are the lovely images I used
There are a couple more on the same theme that I didn't order but I think I may NEED those as well.
