The Lord has come

So, here's another card that is sort of a result of trying to clean up my work desk.  I have one more of these gorgeous A Day For Daisies images left printed out ready to be used.  I really love this image; it's so sweet, speaks to the true meaning of Christmas and is really easy to color--I used a total of 5 markers.  I used a bunch of fun scraps on this one: the "tag" and bit of twine were in my bits and pieces stash and the burlap ribbon was recycled from a favor I received at a women's retreat this fall.  I had to trim the pearls off from the section that is underneath the circle layer so that everything would lay nicely.  I used some of those left over pearls to decorate the centers of my flowers.  (I feel like a recycling queen!)
Thanks for stopping by!
