Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weekend!!  Today is a new Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge!

Today's challenge is hosted by the sweet and talented Meisje!!  Meisje chose the verse:
John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid."

The peace is not the peace we think of when things are all rosy and good but a different kind of peace, that in every situation you have the peace of knowing God is with you in both the good and bad.  Peace is knowing that if tomorrow I cease to exist on earth..that I have eternal life with Him (God) in Heaven.  It is a peace you feel in both your joys and your sorrows..knowing God is in control.

Meisje's challenge is to: create a card with a symbol or peace or shows a scene which is peaceful.
For my creation, I used a symbol of Christmas which to means Peace.  Without Christ's birth there is no peace...

My creation uses the Blessed Christmas image from Our Daily Bread Designs and the word peace from one of the Sentiments in the Peace and Joy set from ODBD.  I also had the opportunity to use one of the new poinsettia dies to be released on October 1.  It is made special to fit the poinsettia in the Blessed Christmas set.  The image is colored with copics and popped up on dimensionals.  The little bit of dp you see is SEI dp.  The image is framed with the Labels 6 die from Spellbinders.

This is so stunning Chris!

Lisa Hjulberg said...

Beautiful card, as always Chris! And I agree with every word you said about the peace in Christ. Knowing that, and that we are saved by grace, is what makes us different that a simply moral person living a God-less life.

Chris that is so beautiful! And wow, what a great use of the poinsettia and the background in white, its lovely. Thanks for sharing your thoughtss about the scripture verse too, it is so true, without Christmas and Christ's birth there would be no peace, we would still be waiting as in the Old Testament. Have a great week!
