My heart melted when I saw this stamp set, Weary World, for the first time.  Baby Jesus in a manger and in the Bethlehem stable captures the beauty of the Christmas season perfectly and simply!  I stamped the image over a piece of kraft card stock and used the coordinating Starry Stable Die Set to cut it out.  The sentiment from Weary World was stamped over the green floral paper, then a few of the new Holiday Sequin Mix sequins were added for a finishing touch.


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
