ODBDSLC215 Anything Goes Week 2

Hello everyone and good morning to you!
May God bless your day!
ODBD stamps used: Wisemen Ornament
ODBD dies used: Fancy Foliage, Peaceful Poinsettia, Matting Circles, Circle Ornaments
I've used part of the new release for October for this card.  The beautiful Wisemen Ornament embossed in gold and layered with gold cardstock with the Matting Circles and the ornament hanger in gold from the same die set.   The gold flourish is from Fancy Foliage and so is the gold pine bough. The pine bough and ornament are popped up on top of a lovely embossed background. Last are the 3 poinsettias cut from the Peaceful Poinsettia die set and formed with a flower tool from behind.  I used gold pearls to center.
Here and there I tucked some metallic gold ribbon in and around the poinsettia and punched white branches and attached half pearls on the cross sections of the background,  I love the all gold and white for this Christmas card!

The Baby Jesus
The time for Jesus to be born is coming and the 3 wisemen are on their way to give gifts and to worship.  Do we give our gifts to God to use for His glory? Do we worship at the feet of the King of kings?  Why would these three kings or wisemen come hundred's of miles on camel back to worship this new baby King that was to be born?  Have you ever thought about that? God must have put it in their hearts that this child would change the world.  Is there ANYONE in history who has had more of an impact than Jesus?  What will you do with this Jesus? History has proved His existence, 500 witness saw Him AFTER He was crucified on the Roman cross and place in a tomb. You may WANT to ignore Him or say He does not exist but you will see Him face to face anyway at the end...what then will you say? Read about the 3 wise men in Matthew 2.
