A Hallelujah Christmas Scripture Challenge

 I used the last verse of the song selected for this challenge. I am playing along at Triple the Scraps.

I know You came to rescue me
This baby boy would grow to be
A man and one day die for me and you
My sins would drive the nails in You
That rugged cross was my cross, too
Still every breath You drew was Hallelujah 

I couldn't stop thinking of "Oh Christ, lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world. Have mercy on us." while making this card. 

I used the passages of Galatians 1:3-5 for the sentiment verse for this card. 
I am sending it along as a New Year's card. My friend since kindergarten's daughter got married this year. She sent me a Christmas card, and I hadn't sent her one. I wanted to send her a beautiful message that would work for the New Year. I truly felt this was a fit.

This is a cascade card. It ships flat and stands on its own.
I used a church die-cut from my silhouette, along with the little lambs.
I used a Cuttlebug embossing die with the argyle pattern.
I added some paint with my gelli plate that I had out for another craft today.
The chalkboard sentiments are from the Paper Studio.

I hope you enjoy my little card. I hope my friend's newlywed daughter and son-in-law enjoy it as well. They are a blessing and I am sure will appreciate the messages in the card.

I hope your Christmas was wonderful. We skipped the commercial entrapments this year and truly celebrated the birth of Christ. What a great Christmas it was. I think my favorite so far!
