Little Drummer Boy

     It's Shining The Light Tuesday at Our Daily Bread Designs!!  That's more fun than hump day!  You get to create a card to encourage someone in the Lord and have a chance to win a gift certificate to purchase more!
     This week's challenge is Get Ready for Christmas.  Here's my card.
     I used the ODBD Little Drummer Boy that was released this month.  Doesn't he remind you of a Precious Moments figurine?  The rough edges mirrors his tattered clothes.  I masked off the image for distressing and added more to the sentiment.  The paper is Webster's pages.
    For more Get Ready for Christmas inspiration please visit my design team sisters:

If you participate, you have a  chance to win the $15 certificate toward ODBD stamps or to be Spotlighted for the Shining the Light Award (The Shining the Light Award is only for those who use ODBD stamps). We would love to see your creations.
