Born is the King of Israel!

HAPPY MONDAY!!!!  Wasn't it a beautiful weekend?  It was here in Jasper!  You know what they say, when you're in Indiana, if you don't like the weather, JUST WAIT AWHILE!  It changes so often!

ETA: 12/15 - I made this card for the DIGI BLOG at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!  Sorry I failed to mention that all day yesterday!  I just re-read my post and realized I never hooked this up to the appropriate blog! DUH! 

My card is using Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps images from a set called the SHEPHERD BOY which also includes three sentiments/verses!  GO SEE THAT!  I used a sketch by Card Patterns {#45 which you can find HERE!}.... I had never heard of this sketch blog before, it is a good one!  This sketch was very challenging for me, but I think it turned out alright!  I was trying to imply grass/groundcover with the green diagonal stripe and a gray, starry sky with the diamond patterned paper up top.  This paper and sentiment are by Stampin' UP!, the border punch by Martha Stewart, the gray BLING by Basic Grey and the ribbon from BigLots! {Copics for coloring, Brilliance Graphite black ink for stamped sentiment!}

I sometimes wonder if people really put some thought into my cards... besides the green and gray papers implying ground and sky, 'NOEL' is the sentiment, right?  Well, how does the song go?  "Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel, Born is the King of Israel!"  So, I thought this card was a wonderful scene for the sentiment "NOEL" to be put at bottom! 

I love how this card turned out for the use of the Card Patterns sketch!  Let me know what you think!

Have a very blessed day!
