Starry Christmas Night

Today's card was made by using several layers of silver-flecked tulle glued to a dark blue background to appear as a very starry night sky as a backdrop for a nativity scene. The die used is Nativity Silhouette from Cottage Cutz, and is run through my machine using four layers of heavy duty aluminum foil. It is also sprinkled with some glitter. A silver bow finishes the project.

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
