Freshly Made Sketches: God of Hope

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by the fabulous Amy O'Neill.

I have an unused border die that has been calling my name.  It's a full 5 1/2" border and I didn't want to lose of any it - so I clipped it and layered it into the smaller panel on this sketch. Then to honor the sketch, I added some fields of snow. I so love working with sketches, they provide so much inspiration!

You can see the layering a little better here. I want to be in that church, in that snow-covered little town, with fireplaces warming each house on Christmas Eve!
