Joy to the World

Hi y'all! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season! I just spent the weekend with my family, enjoying special moments, wonderful food and a teeny bit of snow! I made this card tonight for this week's Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge. For this card, I chose a set called Joy to the World by Our Daily Bread designs. I stamped the Holy Family and the sentiment with Versamark and Memento Brown ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I cut them out with Spellbinders nestibilities dies. The strip of chocolate chip paper along the side is punched with a Martha border punch, embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and sponged with Chocolate Chip ink. The SEI designer paper is also embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and the edges are sponged. This is layered with Chocolate Chip and attached to a Kraft base card. I added Zva pearls to finish the card.

Luke 1: 26-32: 26In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. 28The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you."

29Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. 31You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. 32He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David." (NIV)

I hope you all have a blessed Christmas

and wonderful 2010!
