AYSI262 Prince of Peace

Happy Friday, stampers!  It's time for a new As You See It challenge....and I love this "Fill in the Blank":

For me, the one thing that sums up Christmas is our ultimate gift: the birth of Jesus, our Saviour!  I used a Nativity die along with several other dies to create my card today:

I used a stitched panel die from the Stockings dies to cut a panel from Crumb Cake, and I stamped a portion of the retired Christmas Collage background stamp on top in Crumb Cake ink, sponging the edges a bit.  I adhered my Early Espresso Nativity scene on top:

My background was a piece of Evening Evergreen, diecut with the Scalloped Contours die, then embossed with the Wintery embossing folder and sponged with white craft ink.  I added a banner for my sentiment and a gold diecut star, along with a few other gold stars scattered around:

I added a sentiment with a little gold Zig Painty pen dot on the inside of my Crumb Cake base:

Finally, for my layout, I used the Make the Cards sketch from their current challenge:

I struggled with the colors on this card, I am thinking I should have done a dark blue background, so maybe I'll try another one again!  Meanwhile...this is it!  So what sums up Christmas for you? I hope you'll check out what the design team members created over at the As You See It blog and share your creation with us as well!

Cassidy's karate club participated in their local Halloween parade last night!  She and her friend Avery were thrilled because they got to carry the GLOW IN THE DARK staffs!  And it was a perfect night for a parade!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid.  I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." Luke 2:10-12

Absolutely beautiful creation LeAnne! Beautifully designed inside & out! Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Make The Cards Challenge! Good Luck and we hope you’ll come back often.

Please stop in for a visit!

P.S. The kiddos look like they had a great time! Glad the weather cooperated! Our T or T is tomorrow and they are calling for lots of rain and 56 degrees ... Ugh ... guess I won't be getting my usual 200 kids this year lol.

Amen LeAnne, I agree! Love this to bits and the song lyrics peeking through in the background. Silent Night is my favorite!

Gorgeous card LeAnne and definitely the true meaning of Christmas. Love all the details of your card. Thank you for sharing this beauty.
Great photo of Cassidy and her friend.

I like the color you used and it being lighter contrasts with the figures of the nativity and depicting Christ as the light of the world. He came to change the darkness and the darkness will never over take it!!
