Glory to God in the Highest!

Just can't throw away some of that fabulous Christmas wrapping paper that came my way last month! Today's card uses a piece for the background which appears in the picture to be green and white, but is actually green and gold. The border along the center strip is a Martha Stewart Pine Branch punch, and the sentiment (heat embossed with gold embossing powder) is framed with a Spellbinder's Labels 23 die. The green and gold bows are embellished with three little brass bells.

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 

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
