Peace on Earth (2)

Like the card in the previous post, I used three dies from Poppy Stamps:  Grand Gothic Window, Grand Gothic Stained Glass and Pine sprigs. This card, however, carries with it a much more formal look than the first "Peace on Earth" card. On this one I also used the Spellbinders Bark and Brick EF, using the "Brick" side of the folder. I ran some light grey paper through the brick EF and then used a brayer loaded with gold paint and ran that over the bricks. The focal poiht of the card is the glittery hot pink/red/purple blingy paper behind the "leaded" layer. The facets in it really catch the light in a very interesting way. So glad I got this paper from the craft store.

The frame of the window is spray painted gold. "Peace on Earth" is mounted with pop dots at the top in white, gold and green. Pine sprigs are glued at the bottom of the window and a gold bow finishes the card. Here it is:

I used MS Publisher again for the inside and the back of the card. Inside of the card:

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
