Christmas Card Club #21: Religious Theme

Another fortnight had rolled by since the last time the CCC girls came out to play. Here are again for another round of fun and games.  Our current challenge is hosted by Christine and she has asked that our cards have a Religious theme.

I made an extra tall card, which I'll show you in bits:

This is the sentiment for my card, straight out of the Good Book. This WordArt is the creative genius of Mynnette Kitchen. I cut it out with Spellbinders Labels 4 and inked the edges with TH Faded Jeans. 

This is the bottom half of my focal image. I dressed her up with SN, Promarkers, lashings of Stickles and Liquid Pearls. She really shines IRL.

And now you see her top half....she's an Angel.

My card measures 7"x4". The background papers are from KaiserCraft's Traditional Christmas pack, which I think is out of print now.  This Angel is from Chocolate Baroque's Family Christmas set, I fussy cut her and popped her up on some foam tape.

On the inside I stamped snowflakes from the Family Christmas set using Memento Desert Sand. The sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse's Compact Sentiments, stamped with Memento Danube Blue.

Come join me in these challenges:

Bloggers Challenge "Things With Wings"
Brown Sugar #66 "Things With Wings"
Christmas Card Challenges #49 "Dimension"
A Gem of a Challenge #104 "Christmas is Coming"
All Sort #231 "Christmas Cheer"
CHNC Extra November "Anything Goes Christmas"
Inky Impressions #132 "Traditional Christmas"

I'm glad Christine picked this theme. Oftentimes we get lost in the glitz and glamour of Christmas that we forget what a truly magical day it really is and how blessed we are to be able to celebrate it as children of the one true King.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a blessed Sunday. See you tomorrow!

Beijinhos!
