Supplies: Stampendous stamps, Studio G sentiment, Faith papers by Paper Studio, $1 star punch, Cuttlebug frame EF, Cheery Lynn branch die - purchased at Joan's Gardens.
The challenge at Joan's Gardens is to include paper piecing. She has a link to a video on piecing a die. I did not have a suitable die, but tried to replicate the technique with this stamp. You may not be able to see it, but the palm branches are two layers - for a bit of the second color and also more dimension.
I did the same with the shepherd's crook. For the tree, I cut a lighter green piece - sort of cutting outside the lines. Then I stamped on a darker green, cutting inside the lines. This gives a sense of a few lighter fronds - our palm trees have different shades of green. I also pieced the shepherds robes - and decided to make it look light the one on the left is facing the other way. For the MFP challenge I used a second stamp to do the sheep on the left - the Stampendous clear stamp set has 3 images and a sentiment. I used 2 of the images.
Recipe (1 die (branch), 2 images (see above), 3 colors (red, green, beige):
