ODBD dies: Ornate Borders and Flowers set; Paper pack-Christmas 2013

Our challenge this week at Shining the Light is "Anything Goes
For more inspiration please visit my enormously talented design team sisters:

You have until January 5th (this is a two week challenge).  For this challenge you may use any stamps but if you have any Our Daily Bread Design (ODBD) stamps we would love to see you use them.  If you participate, you have the chance to win a $15 certificate good toward ODBD stamps or to be spotlighted for the Shining the Light Award (Shining the Light Award is only for those who use ODBD stamps).  We would love to see your creations!
For this creation I used ODBD- The Babe stamp set, ODBD Ornate Borders and Flowers stamp set, ODBD Ornate Borders and Flowers die set and the 2013 Christmas paper pack.
I also used dies by Memory Box, Cheery Lynn Designs and Spellbinders.
This is Christmas Eve so I thought it would be most appropriate to do the Babe!!!  This is one of my favorite stamps.  The thought that God in heaven would send His son to dwell in human flesh and let Him be born in a lowly state, it just amazes me.  He deserved all the riches of a royal birth but was placed in a manger, in a dwelling with animals.  He grew up working with His hands, with His earthly father, helping with His "brothers and sisters", helping His mother do shores.  He then went on into ministry, allowing people to mock Him, spit on Him, try to stone Him but still He loved us enough to die for us.  Not just die but be put on trial falsely accused, beaten, whipped and finally dying on a cross, the most humiliating and harsh death of those days. This is Jesus, God with us, Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace, King of kings!!!  He walked about healing all who were afflicted, doing miracles everywhere He went and This Jesus, who rose from the grave, still does miracles, especially in the heart! Romans 10:9 "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
Thanks for stopping by!!!
