This week the challenge for the Twisted Sisters was to make a Christmas card inspired by a Christmas song, and have plenty of bling. I chose Casting Crowns version of “ I heard the bells on Christmas Day” because it touches me to think that peace can be had on Earth. That is the Christmas message. This poem was written on Christmas Day, 1862 by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and set to music on 1872.
The main image is from Stampscapes and is watercolored and paper pieced over the same image, is mounted on a nestie and has SnoTex and dazzling diamonds (that is my bling!) The sky was sponged in going gray over a torn paper towel, and the pine sprigs (MS Branch Punch) have more dazzling diamonds.
The sentiment is from Close to my Heart reads “Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth peace and good will toward men.” Luke 2:14

Thankgoodness Nancy Williams (nwilliams6) took a stroll down memory lane otherwise I would have missed this. I had to blink a few little tears out of my eyes before I could take all of this in. Pat I wish you could teach the whole world how to make cards like this. There would be no more wars, just unbelievable splitcoaststamper galleries and very warm hearts!!!
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

I think this is THE most incredibly beautiful card I have seen all day, and I have been lying on my back all afternoon after toe surgery, hopping from gallery to gallery - so that is saying a lot! It just absolutely takes my breath away. I wish I could favorite this card more than once! Unbelievable talent!!
