SSIC LOC Touched by an Angel

This weeks Stampin' Sisters for Christ Challenge is brought to you by one of the founders of the Challenge - the lovely Lisa Hjulberg

Lisa has chosen the scripture from

 "But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, 'Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.' All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 'The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel' which means, 'God with us.'"Matthew 1:20-22,

and challenged us to make a card/project depicting an angel

I have used the Holly Angel cling art stamp from Layers of Color

along with the sentiment from the Christmas Verses clear art stamp set, that had been cut with the Spellbinders Labels Fourteen Die Template

and the Fleur de Lis Border - all Dies have been cut with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur
