Request of the Week - Nativity Silhouette

Joanne, from Hartford, CT, requested a dramatic Nativity Silhouette design to add some flair to
a holiday gift she was working on. "My neighbor always decorates her house full of Nativity-
themed items every Christmas season.  I want to give her a gift she can display, but doesn't
already have.  My solution?  A throw pillow!  But, I want a bold design that will really stand out."

From request to reality, this striking silhouette design, full of strong lines and a soft background
will look fantastic on a pillow and many other home decor items such as towels, table runners,
wall hangings, and blankets.  Thank you for the marvelous suggestion, Joanne!
 

Available in two sizes:
6.60"X5.85" and 5.48"X4.89"
