ODBD Sketch Challenge

Please excuse the mess; blog under construction!

I had a little time to craft this afternoon, after trying to catch up on all of the things I have been neglecting.  I finally have the Christmas tree up and most of the decorating done.  Time to squeeze in a little stamping!
I love the Our Daily Bread Designs stamps and one of their newest ones, Baby Jesus, is no exception. I used the image for this week's sketch challenge-

I really like how this turned out-it is so simple yet speaks volumes about the true meaning of Christmas.  I need that reminder sometimes.  I used My Mind's Eye 'Sunshine" dp and Cosmo Cricket dp along with Very Vanilla and Early Espresso Stampin' Up CS.  The image and sentiment are stamped in Early Espresso and the edges are sponged with Van Dyke brown ink.  You can't really see it in the photo, but the dp that the image is matted on has rays coming from it so gives the appearance of Baby Jesus radiating light. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!
