Christmas shepherds from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies, I've got another Christmas card to share this morning before I rush off to work. This card was made using one of the gorgeous new releases from Chocolate Baroque. The new Christmas designs are just stunning, pop over and have a look at them all here.

I've used a dictionary page as my background and stamped the Shepherds with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The holly was stamped and embossed with Gold embossing powder. I coloured the shepherds with Graph'It markers and added some white to the sheep with a gel pen. Its quite time consuming colouring on the text but I love the effect.

I've edged the page with a gold krylon pen, layered the page up one a brown card blank and tied a twine bow along the edge. I was lucky enough to find a dictionary page with 'Christmas' on so I took a red pen and circled the word as a fun sentiment

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Chocolate Coffee and Cards: Vintage
Completely Christmas: anything goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas: do you hear what I hear
Jingle Belles: Use gold
Paper Creators Crafts: Early Christmas
STAMPlorations: Stamps and markers
