Recycled Christmas Wrapping Paper

Today's card uses some wrapping paper that was saved from a couple of years ago. It had several scenes on it, and the one I chose for this card was of the shepherds looking at the Star of Bethlehem. It is framed with sparkly gold cardstock.

The star was cut from the Cricut December 25th cartridge; it was inked with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. It is further embellished with a rhinestone. The base is from some red cards that I have had for a long time; glitter was used to enhance it. The sentiment is one that Diane Noble created; she is a DT member at Word Art Wednesday; it is punched out with a Stampin' Up punch, but I don't know which one--sorry! It is attached with pop dots, and a double-looped hand tied bow finishes the card.

Here it is:

Romans 10:9-10
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
