It Looks Like a Christmas Card

At first glance you would think this is a Christmas card with the wreath, red, green, and gold, but take a closer look. The message sets it apart. It's not a holiday greeting, though it might work as one looking forward to the new year.  I made this card and a set like it, to send to the women I meet with every week for what we call Bible Therapy Group. These women are a treasure. We lift each other up when needed and celebrate whenever we can. Best of all—we laugh A LOT.

We finished our book for the semester, and this one verse came up more than once.  And, I just happened to have a stamp with the verse on it. (I love when that happens!) 

"He who has begun a good work in you will carry it on until the day of Christ." Philippians 1:6.
It's a reminder that we are each a work in progress.  God is not finished with us, yet. 

Card Details: Folded white card is 5"x 5"; round top corners; trim textured red card stock to leave 1/8" border; round top corners; cut out gold circles 4 1/4"; green circles 4"; stamp sentiment (My Sentiments Exactly) with green ink (old olive, Stamping' Up) on cream card stock and cut out 3 3/4" circle; on gold card stock  2 3/4" circle stamp wreath elements (Rubber Stamp Tapestry, Art Impressions, Stamping' Up) using Kaleidacolor's Flannel rainbow ink pad; add red gem embellishments.
