Also posting for the Chocolate Baroque challenge (red, black, white), the Country View challenge (Create a Scene) and the Our Creative Corner challenge (Wish Upon a Star).
My personal choice of theme for this calendar has been mixed media and pages from an old book with sermons from 1850. I happened to spot a Christmas Sermon with a Bible quote of the shepards watching their herd, and the scene evolved around it. The shepards have been fussy cut and mounted on low foam tape next to their story.
I didn't really like the colours of the previous Chocolate Baroque challenge, so I waited for it to change -- and the new colours were even further from what I had wished! Decided to go with them anyway, though the old paper required an add of tan. The tree line (of which only a small part is visible on both edges) and the shepards are both CB stamps. I just got some gold star confetti from my DT boss Bibi, and used it to bling the sky. Love how they caught the light in the picture below!
