Good Tidings of Great Joy

It is time for another challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  This week our focus verse is Luke 2:10, "And the angel said unto them, Fear Not; for, behold, I being you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people."  Christ's birth was the greatest news (tidings) that have ever been given.  Wouldn't it have been neat to have been an angel that got to tell people the good news of His birth?  It would have also been pretty cool (and yes, my knees would have been knocking to see and hear the angels talking to me) to hear the news straight from the angels.  Let's be sure to share the Good News of the Gospel with others so that they too can know the "Good Tidings of Great Joy."

I kept my card pretty simple today.  This card is an adaptation of Dawn Griffith's Trim the Tree Christmas card.  I follow Dawn on YouTube and really enjoy her projects.  I also returned to some old favorites: inking the edges of my papers and faux stitching.

The interior has a little bit of decoration too.

Cardstock: DCWV (Christmas & Winter 12x12 cardstock pad), Recollections (cream)
Patterned Paper: DCWV (Heirloom Christmas 12x12 stack)
Digi Stamp: WORDart by Karen (Luke 2:10)
Ink:  Distress Ink (Vintage Photo)
Tools/Embellishments: Staedtler fine tip marker (brown), ribbon (Hobby Lobby), rhinestones (The Paper Studio), Spellbinders dies (Petite Ovals Small, Petite Scalloped Ovals Large), Fiskars border punch (Apron Lace)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Bling it On!
Pile It On Challenge #49 - Christmas/Holiday
Scrapbook Blessings Club - Holiday theme
Shopping Our Stash Challenge #180 - Favorite technique (inking and faux stitching)

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you'll have time to play along with us this week.  Please don't forget to stop by the Word Art Wednesday Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team made and pick up your free digi.

What a beautiful verse and such a lovely card! I like that you added the ink to the edges (something I forget to do).

I linked over from the "Anything goes Word Art Wednesday Challenge" where I am participating too with a cute Christmas printable. Would love it if you'd stop by.
