Little Bethlehem

My powers are weak when it comes to resisting the whimsical Hannah Davies holiday images from Impression Obsession. This one is Little Bethlehem. Just like with the Stocking image from a few days ago, I opted for some fun, cheery, somewhat non-traditional colors. Coloring is with Copics, papers are from the My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas collection. Accents include Stardust Stickles, May Arts burlap string, different ribbons, baker's twine, a scalloped border and some turquoise rhinestones.

I love the composition and the way all those scallops and plaids and zigzags compliment one another :-)

Oh Amy! This is just too cute. I always love visiting your blog (even tho I may not comment, I visit daily if I can). Wish I had your talent to see things "layered". :>
