ODBDSLC179

Oh little town of Jerusalem
Looks like another silent night
The Father gave His only Son
The Way, the Truth, the Life had come
But there was no room for Him in the world He came to save

The above lyrics are from Casting Crowns' "While You were Sleeping." It is what inspired me to do this card. That City of Bethlehem background stamp is the only Christmas stamp I have from Our Daily Bread Designs, but I decided to add this head of Christ, which is also from ODBD to this card to send the powerful message of just who this Holy Babe grew to be. I used the rhinestone cross in the star to remind us of the precious gift of salvation which is ours through the cross, the real reason for the season. You can find the ODBDSLC here.

Oh, Liz, I'm so glad you had this one stamp!! I love that song as well, and it makes a great theme for this card. After all, Christmas is all about Christ and His going to the cross! So glad you were able to join us again this week for the ODBD Shining the Light challenge! Hugs, Cheryl

What a perfect holiday card, Liz!! After all Christmas would mean nothing without God sending His Son to die for us. Love how you paired these images together and your colors!! Thanks for joining us this week!!
