I played my best for Him!

Hello friends!

Today I have a different style card than my usual... but I have to admit that I had fun coloring this poor little Drummer Boy!  I stamped my image from this month's ODBD release, Little Drummer Boy with Memento and colored him with Copics.  I cut him out with a Spellbinder's Long Rectangles Large die, and matted with the Scalloped Long Rectangles.  I sponged around the edges to shabby it up a bit, to match his shabby little outfit. I stamped three of the sentiments out on different designer paper scraps and then punched them out with a square punch.  I sewed around each one and lined them up on a scrap of blue dp.  I created  a background  with the O Little Town of Bethlehem Background stamp, also released this month.  I stamped that on some designer paper I had in my stash, giving some interest and color, and even though most of it is covered, it  still reveals the title to set the stage for where this little drummer boy is.  :)

I adhered the sentiments on the right and popped up my image on dimensionals so it could rest over top of my twine trim. 

Here are the ODBD sets used:

I am entering this in the following challenges:

I hope you are having a great week!  Don't forget... it's time to get those Christmas cards started!
