The Greatest Gift is Jesus

Today's Christmas card highlights an image that I got from the internet; it was a free image, not one that is bought from a site. One reason it was chosen is that it is pre-colored with beautiful shading; another reason is that it conveys the feeling of innocence, sweetness and humility. It is diecut with Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles and matted in pink, aqua and gold. The sentiment is from Sweet 'n' Sassy Stamps and is punched out with an EK Success scalloped punch. A hand-tied bow finishes the card:

I am entering this card in the following challenges ending:

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
