Christmas Candle and Poinsettia

Today's Christmas card was a lot of fun to make; the main pieces were from Diane's Daydream Design, using her papers and a colorful digi from her store. These background papers add to a certain "down home" feeling for the card, like you were in a country setting with warm, loving family members. I do hope you will check out her store; she has some delightful things there.


I added some interest to the background gingham piece by running it through an EF.

These were used to make the card:
And here is the card:

This is the embossed gingham background. The pattern is indistinguishable, but you can tell that it adds texture and interest.

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 

Acts 13:38-39
"Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God—something the law of Moses could never do."  NLT
