Glory to God

Hello friends and welcome.




My friend Sue is hosting Merry Monday this week.

I have a lot of favorite Christmas verses but this one has a special place in my heart
and memories of Christmas pageants.

And I'm always happy to have a reason to use a NBUS set!

After punching out the embossed image, I die cut a circle a little larger 
than the image and heat embossed the edges.

I die cut the smaller mat from a piece of gold Inka Gold Smoosh  and
heat embossed the edges of the larger die cut mat.

The design was adhered to a piece of Acrylic paper (love the texture) that
was matted with some Brushed Gold cardstock.

Thanks Merry Makers for the win last week!
I am honored.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!
