SSIC LOC Rejoice

This is our last week of the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge for 2011 - the Design Team are going to be spending time with their families over the next two weeks and starting again on Sunday January 8, 2012.
This week Miesje has chosen the wonderful scripture:

"Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men"
Luke 2:14

and has challenged us to make a Christmas card or project that is Christian, image and/or sentiment must have the TRUE meaning of Christmas.

I have used the Layers of Color Christmas Verses, Glad Tidings and Touch of Elegance clear art stamp sets

I have also used the negative of the Spellbinders Labels Twenty Two Die as a frame for the Christmas sentiment, and added some paper piercing to the corners.

This card is for the following challenges:
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas - Anything goes for Christmas
Marks Finest Papers - Make a Christmas card
One Stop Craft - Christmas Sparkle
Secret Crafter - New Year/Celebration
Sweet Stampin - Sparkle and Bling
Card Crafters Circle – Celebration

Glitter Geeks - Anything Goes
Raise The Bar – Christmas
Artistic Stampers - Christmas
