Word Art Wednesday Guest Designer ~ Week 2

Hello and welcome to my second week as Guest Designer for Word Art Wednesday.
Today's verse comes to you from the book of Luke chapter 1, verse 14.

And REJOICE we shall!!

For this card, I made it into a shaker card. I used PTI's Petite Places Nativity to create the background scene that goes perfectly with this scripture. Once the shaker part was done I added this lacy holly die that my sweet friend Marcia sent me and added a few red stickles berries to the vine.

Here's a better picture of the scene without all the shakery stuff getting in the way.

I actually made two cards using this scripture because the first one didn't come out as good as I had hoped.

I like this card much better. I used WPlus9's Merry & Bright and some pine sprigs cut from a Martha Stewart punch.

Thanks so much to Karen and her highly talented group of designers for allowing me the honor of joining them. I am both humbled and thrilled to be part of this amazing team this month!
Be sure to stop my the Word Art Wednesday challenge blog to join in on the fun!

I'm also adding one of these cards to the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit

Birgit, this is one gorgeous set of cards! I adore how you did the windows in them. They are both very beautiful! The little nativity is just precious and the holly "frame" just works beautifully. The candle in the window on the second card is delightful, the colors are so amazing!!! I just love these and am thrilled to have the idea to add to my mental notebook. :) Hugs and congrats on another super week! Autumn

I really like both of these cards Birgit! I mean how can you not like a shaker card, right?!! And the holly frames the nativity so beautifully, and then the verse is just the icing on the cake...SO lovely!! And the candle card is just gorgeous too! Love the colors you used and just the whole bouquet that's surrounding the candle...another beauty!! :0)
