"For unto you is born this day..."

I cannot believe there are only 38 days until Christmas!!!  We're playing bits and pieces of Christmas music, no decorations yet, but I am starting to make plans for Christmas!

This card has a Doodle Pantry image of Bethlehem.  It has wonderful sentiments in this set, too, but I just won a clear stamp set from My Craft Spot's release blog hop this week that arrived in the mail today, so I went and played!! :)

I used...
~Doodle Pantry Mini Bethlehem colored digi
~My Craft Spot 'Joy to the World' sentiment
~Distressed Stripes embossing folder
~paper from my scrap pile :)
~hemp, button, and punches

Twist of Faith #11 - religious Christmas

Debbie, thank you for sharing that lovely card with us. It had great depth and reminded me of the real thing.( as if I knew what that really was). I liked your card immensely, come back again next week.

Debbie, At first glance your card had immense depth and that piece with the button tied over it reminded me of a bale of hay. Thus the scene was set in my mind for the birth of the Christ Child. It is really such an amazing piece of art. Thank you for sharing with us.
