Isaiah 9:6 For unto Us a Child Is Born

I seem to be on a roll making Christmas cards, and that is a very good thing. I am entering this post at Joan's Touch where we are challenged to make a card with more than one layer, no stamps and a product sold at Joan's Gardens. (Items in red may be purchased there.) 

The card has a deep purple and white background which was placed on a white cardstock base. Next, a piece of white cardstock that I re-purposed (stamped on the other side with a digi I did not want to use) was sprayed with purple glitter mist, then a Spellbinder's rectangular die (Fleur De Lis) was run through my E-Bosser, framing a wonderful computer-printed sentiment from Word Art Wednesday, and this was placed on top of the glittered paper. The silver ribbon (also re-purposed) made with Bow Easy, actually has three loops, but in trying to manipulate the loops so that they all showed up, the appearance of the bow suffered, so I settled for a two-loop look to the bow. 

Here is the card:

I love this sentiment which I got from Word Art Wednesday last year:

Everything was elevated with pop dots:

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
