Recycled Christmas Card #1

Years ago, before I started making my own Christmas cards, I purchased some from a local store. They were up in a cabinet for years, forgotten and neglected. I pulled them out recently and decided to use them in making creations of my own. I accented the image with gold glitter glue and also loose gold glitter. The little lamb is accented with silver glitter. The berries and eyes of the lion were accented with red liquid paint drops; background paper is embossed. Card is finished with a red double-looped bow.

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
