Easter

Ok, so I'm a bit late for Easter, but maybe I'm early for next year? Either way, the Creative Inspirations #157 and For Fun challenges these week were both to create an Easter project. I also used the Sweet Stop Sketches #153 sketch (they are celebratin a birthday and let us choose from past sketches; I chose #136), the Our Daily Bread Designs #103 challenge to create a project celebrating new life (the cross is the basis for the new life of a Christian) and the Stampin' Sister in Christ challenge to create a joy-ful card; something celebratory (the resurrection of Jesus is THE most important reason to celebrate). The image and the sentiment are both from the same set by Flourishes (I don't know the name, it was a gift and didn't come with all the packaging) and I used the musical score stamp from Skipping Stones Design's "Timeless Textures" set. After I had the image and sentiment stamped, I felt like the sentiment panel covered up way too much of the image so I lightly stamped and colored the missing part of the image onto the sentiment panel. And it works! I added three Kaiser Kraft droplets in the upper left to add a little something that seemed to be missing.
