And Heaven and Nature Sing

Today I made a CAS Christmas card and used some printouts from a site that gives free downloads of labels and background Christmas paper. The site is at World Label. I want to give credit to them and thank them for their generosity. It is so kind of them to make this available.

Starting with white cardstock, a printed out background paper was laid down. Before doing that, I attached a piece of wide red ribbon that was in my stash. The labels are free, and you can type any sentiment you want from your computer, so I put in some words from the Christmas carol, "Joy to the World." It is layered on top of the ribbon with pop dots. The little birdie and branch are from a new Stampin' Up punch I got in the mail yesterday:  Large Two Step Bird Punch. The branch on  which the little bird sits is included in the punch. The bird is also attached with pop dots to elevate her. She has a little white liquid pearl eye.

Here is 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

    1. Karen, I did stop by The Kraft Journal blogspot in hopes of entering this card, but it appears that the project must have kraft paper, so maybe I will post another challenge there soon.
