Little Shepherd

After a brief interruption...I'm back with another Christmas card...there'll be quite a lot again this week! I've used an image sent to me by my lovely ABC Christmas Challenge DT buddy Lacey, called 'Noel Little Shepherd' by Sarah Kay (Stampavie). The papers are from the 'Festive Frost' collection by My Mind's Eye, the sentiment stamp is from a Lili of the Valley set, and the star was cut using one of my star Nesties. I distressed all of the edges using 'Old Paper' & 'Pumice Stone' distress inks, and my distressing tool,...then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee bug and a white gel pen.
