A Shepherd Boy Christmas card for Design Team Inspiration at TCCC Blog

Was this Shepherd Boy guarding his lamb the night baby Jesus was born? So much symbolism in this image...God protecting His Son...or God protecting one of His flock...creatures kneeling before Jesus...Merry Christ-mas, everyone!

For The Crafter's Café Challenge Blog #233: theme options are holidays or I spy with my little eye "C" things (Christ, Christmas, comfort, clothing, cookies, cocoa, etc.)

Shepherd Boy image from the prize sponsor QKR Stampede. More prize details related to participating for this new fortnight (expanded due to upcoming holiday time) challenge at the TCCC blog. Link =

The kraft and gold metallic damask patterned cardstock is from Creativity Inc. Cardstock behind the digital image is recycled packaging! Stamp for sentiment is from Pink Paislee's Together at Home for Christmas collection. Gold and black star sticker is from The Paper Studio. All papers except base have been edged in black ink.
