Happy Ressurection Sunday

He is Risen!!!! 
Praise God from whom all blessings flow. I count it all joy to find myself once again in the land of the living. The Lord decided that he is not through with me yet.

I made some cards for Easter and could not decide what I wanted to do. I had an idea floating around in my head, but was having trouble bringing it to paper. This is what I finally decided upon.

The sentiment is laser printed and foiled with the Anna Griffin silver foil. I used the Minc machine for the transfer. 

The oval outline is Graphic 45. I cut out the icon using my Brother Scan n Cut. The cross is from Spellbinders and I used some of the Dollar Tree Jot Foil and Holographic paper for the outline. The silver is Bazzil. Flowers were formed using Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose and inked with Distress Inks. The blue behind the white label is actually a striped white-washed sheet of paper from GCD Spring All Over (LUV their papers!). Centers of flowers are Queen and Company. The white ones are Dollar Tree.

I was not too happy with the way the glitter came out on the flowers. Next time I think I will use white Ultra Extra fine glitter or leave them bare and spritz them with some glimmer mist.
Here is a photo unadorned. This is when I was trying to decide placement.

This is a much softer look and would be great for a sympathy card. We live and learn. I swapped out the Distress inked leaves on the yellow rose (for a pink one) and put in some colored using my Spectrum Noir markers. The leaves 'pop' better. The glitter washed them out. Oh, the background die is also Spellbinders. I got it during their recent clearance sale with a few other goodies, so watch this space.

I am thankful to be able to celebrate the Resurrection with my family and friends. That is what it is all about in the end. Our love for Jesus and each other.

May the Lord keep you and Bless You.
Until then.
