Shepherd boys

Three very similar cards put together with some very old Paper Nation supplies - the shepherd boys are decoupaged. I just tore the edges of the paper and added some stitched ribbon.

All papers used were offcuts that had been lurking at the bottom of the box for years (and there's still more there!) so these are for Pixie's crafty snippets 29 and Hiding in my craftroom 54: super scraps Saturday.

Photos are awful - took them outside yesterday before the light faded - would take them again today, but it's raining (yet again!).

These are for:
