Bethlehem.

Good morning everyone!! I am posting another one of my Christmas cards. I hope everyone is having a great week and that everyone had a great Veteran's Day. Here is my card:

I love this image. I believe the image was from Clearly iStamp, but they have closed up shop. The whole thing is colored with the Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I popped some buildings and the palms on the trees and the star. I added small, yellow gems for additional stars and I added Stickles to the star. I distressed the edges of the papers, all of which are scraps from box. The Rejoice stamp is a Paper Smooches stamp. I really love how this card turned out. I hope you like it too!!

Just another quick reminder that Open-Minded Crafting Fun Challenges is having a DT Call right now.. hop on over if you have ever thought of joining a DT!!  They need 14 or 16 to get going!! And if you haven't already, be sure to hop over there to follow so you don't miss out on any of the fun. The first challenge will go up on January 4th, but until then they are spotlighting all of the wonderful sponsors and will spotlight the new DT Members once they are in place!!!


Update on this image... thank you Vickie!! This image is by Laurie Wilson and she is now selling her items at Doodle Pantry!!!

I love the way you layered one of my favorite images! You were right that the image was from Clear Dollar Stamps (blog-Clearly iStamp). It was an image by Laurie Wilson and she is gradually releasing those sold by CDS at her own store, Doodle Pantry. Little Bethlehem is there: http://doodlepantry.com/shop.html?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage_images.tpl&product_id=724&category_id=97.

Ok, Ok, Ok... you win! I am going to HAVE to do some layering soon. I haven't been able to create myself much due to homeschooling and spending hours at dance with my kids. I miss it SO much! I love this beautiful card. What a peaceful scene this is. Jesus is the reason!

Thank you for playing along this month at Freshly Brewed Challenges November Prize Challenge.
