Silent Night

Have you made all your Christmas cards yet? I am so appreciative of the many blogs which encourage us to make them throughout the year, and for the "Anything Goes" challenges, too. They have made it fun and easy to prepare for the day when we mail out all those beautiful Christmas creations.

Today's card is a break from traditional colors; I have used a lavender/purple cardstock and have stamped and heat embossed the scene from Luke 2:1-16 where the shepherds see the Bethlehem star and go to the stable where King Jesus lies in the manger. I used the Hero Arts Nativity stamp and embossed it with silver embossing powder. The embellishment at the top is from Joann's; the star is accentuated with a rhinestone, and a silver double-looped bow at the top 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
