And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Here is my card made with Christmas Silhouettes:
Creative Nugget:  The inspiration for this card came from two sources.  First the Color Challenge on SCS yesterday was to use pink, green, and dark blue...yes...what looks like black in my photo is actually a shimmery dark blue.  The other source is this week's Queen for the Day, Cheryl Scrivens, who just happens to be as sweet as can be and has an awesome gallery to boot!  I CASEd THIS BEAUTIFUL CARD for my sample.  The Basic Grey DP panels were stitched to the Midnight Sky Shimmer paper and mounted on a Solar Crest card base.  The frame was cut from SB Square and Scalloped Square Nesties.  The candle and holly branches were cut with the matching Christmas Silhouettes Dies, stamped with Angel Pink and Bamboo Leaves ink, and sponged with matching distress inks.  Several gems were placed on the holly berries and a silver cord bow was added to finish the card.

Check out some of the fabulous samples made by our talented DT in the thumbnails below.
