Jesus, The True Gift

This is a CAS card I created to play along in a few challenges.  I luv the challenge over at CASology,  I immediately thought about Jesus as the true gift of Christmas!  I used the sweet CAS sketch from Feeling Sketchy and of course this fits the challenge at Word art Wednesday.  I have used die cut stars that I embossed and then sponged with Tim Holtz distressed ink.  A few lines of scoring, it is hard to see and then the burlap bow.  The stamps are from Verve, the set Richly Blessed which is on sale!

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.          
                                               ~Romans 6:22-23                                                        
Paper:  Cream card Stock and Authentique Designer Paper
Ink:  Coffee Archival(Ranger)
Accessories:  Sizzix Sta Die, Embossing Folder, Scor Pal, Burlap String, Glue Dots, and Foam Squares

I think in the hustle and bustle at this time of year everybody is so caught up in the commercial aspect of Christmas that they totally forget that Jesus Is The Reason For The Season!! I made a very simple card too and used that very sentiment as the total focus of the card. Have a blessed Christmas Teresa. Christine x
