Glory to God

This week's challenge at Word Art Wednesday is Anything Goes, and is being sponsored by Daydream Designs.  One lucky person will win a $20 gift certificate to the adorable Daydream Designs store where they can pick from dozens of adorbale image packages.  What an awesome prize!   I used the ornaments from Daydream Designs Little Bits of Christmas set to make my card this week.
 
We also said goodbye this week to our fellow Word Art Wednesday Design Team Member, Paula Pike who lost her battle with cancer, and is now safely in the arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Our love and prayers go out to Paula's family - her husband Blair, and her four beautiful children, Mattea, Tamas, Talia and Caleb.  She will be sadly missed by so many, and was certainly a beautiful person.
Here are the challenges I'm entering with this card:

  9. Oh, so beautiful, Karen. What a gorgeous layout and perfect embellishments. Your holly, ribbon and bells are exquisite. And the ornaments are great paper-pieced. Wonderful projects.

    My heart goes out to the Pike family. Paula was an amazing woman of God, so I know she left a spiritual legacy that will not be forgotten. Now she is enjoying the fruit of her labors for the Lord.

    1. Dear Karen, This is my second attempt at leaving you a comment so maybe this computer isn't as fixed as I had hoped. Now to that beautiful card. Oh my goodness the shapes of those ornaments are perfect, the designer paper, the glitter, what a way to tie our Spiritual beliefs with holiday traditions, so beautifully. You likely have the ribbon and bow making catagory all sealed up as well. I really love the card and Diane has given that artist in you another way out. Thank you for sharing this with us. Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of your team mate. Stay Blessed Carole
