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)

Happy Sunday, friends!  I have just a quick card to share with you today created for the Shining the Light Challenge this week at Our Daily Bread Designs.

Creative Nugget:  This week's challenge was a word challenge... "Noel."  Here's what I used:
N - Noel, Nesties;  O - Ornaments, Organdy Ribbon;  E - Embossing;  L - Lots of Layers

A piece of Turtle Dove paper by KaiserCraft was matted onto scarlet Jewel Card stock and adhered to a Vintage Cream card base.  The frame , made from Labels Seventeen Dies, was stamped with the Joy to the World Hymn in Scarlet Jewel after stamping off twice.  This was then embossed with the Canvas Impression Plate.  The swag from the Gift of God set was stamped three times, colored with Copic Markers and all three were cut out.  The ornaments from the Holiday Ornaments 2 set were gold embossed on Vintage Cream and Scarlet Jewel card stock, Cut with the matching dies, and hung from the frame with gold cord.  The swags were then popped up on top.  And another Christmas card done!  Time is running out!

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful week!
