Glory to God

I keep thinking I am done with Christmas cards and then I come upon another challenge that calls for them.  Hopefully today will be the last of Christmas cards. I made this card using the Bible passage that Word Art Wednesday had.  It was Anything Goes, but I didn't want to use red and green, but some non-traditional Christmas colors.   I used the Brush Stroke Frame Border from DS4J and added the text inside it.  I still need to learn how to merge two images.  I typed the verse in Photoshop Elememts and printed the image as a whole.  I ran VersaMark along the edge of the image piece, dipped it in Ranger Gold Tinsel and heat set it.  I learned this technique a couple weeks ago in a class and really like it.  I distressed the edges of the background dp.

Materials used:
Cardbase from Michaels 6.5 x 5
Bo Bunny DP from the Frosted Collection
Copic Sketch Markers
Pearls from Want2Scrap (colored with Copic)
Ranger Gold Tinsel
Challenges entered:
