This was definitely a challenge!

The gals over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown have a doozie for us this week. They would like you to create something that incorporates Scripture. There are so many Christmas verses that I didn't know where to start. I also didn't want to choose one willy nilly, so there it became the challenge.
The first thing I really decided was that I wanted to use an Angel and not just any Angel. I looked at what felt like thousands of digis and images online but nothing grabbed my attention.. until... I found this gorgeous silhouette of a Herald Angel. This opened up all the possibilities for the verse as well.

When I chose the striped paper from my Festival of Prints DSP stack, I was a little scared. Perhaps a little over the top? Once I put it all together, I really liked it (and not one stamp!!).

Here is the verse in case you can't read it too well -

And the Angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2: 10-11

I hope you can join in over at 52CC Throwdown - they have some wonderful inspiration for you.


Thanks for looking xx
