Christmas Card With Blue Vellum

Today I was listening to the songs my son will sing in the Christmas program at school. One of the songs' lyrics says, "Love reached down to me. Reaching to earth, through humble birth, love reached down to me." Isn't that amazing? The Bible says God IS love, and He, the Almighty God, humbled himself and came to earth so we could be reached with his love. What have we done to deserve such an awesome love? NOTHING! He loves us because HE IS LOVE. Wow!!!! The card I'm posting today has a nativity scene, but I don't think that scene even begin to describe what Jesus has really done for us.

Supplies used for this card
Paper: White cardstock, blue vellum 
Tools: heat gun, winter wonderland embossing powder (Recollections), white gel pen, gold glitter pen
Stamps: "Glory to the Newborn King" phrase, and nativity scene with trees (both from SU)
Ink: black, and Versamark for heat embossing
Embellishments: small clear gemstones, silver pearls

When you celebrate Christmas this year, think of the enormous amount of love that was poured on mankind on that cold night in the Middle East, and take a moment to thank God for that. 

Thanks for stopping by, and may the wonders of CHRISTmas fill your heart with joy.
