God's love at Easter

This card was made possible by my favorite little crafter, my youngest daughter (she's 6).  Almost every time she sees me making cards, she wants to make some too.  I have a bunch of papers that I'm not real fond of (read: never use) so I let the girls have free range with them.  Well, she pulled out this purple floral to use and when I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for the Easter card I was making.  Purple is the color associated with royalty, after all.  So, here it is:
 I only have one Easter set with sentiments and both sentiments were way too big for the front of my card.  But then I thought that there is no better sentiment to express Easter than the word "love" since it was pure love that caused Christ to die on the cross.  Then, to finish off the inside:

Jo's Scrap Shack #81--Easter
Brown Sugar Challenge #139--Easter
Meljen's Designs #253--Easter
Sugar Pea Designs #14--Celebrate Spring (to me Easter is the unofficial start of spring)
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2--sketch (I turned mine on it's side)

Word Art Wednesday #176--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
Fan-tastic Challenge #78--Easter (must be a square or a rectangle)
Our Daily Bread Designs #231--Easter/Spring Religious inspiration
Crafty Cardmakers #135--Spring has sprung
Eureka Stamps #133--think Spring
Sister Act Card Challenge #99--anything goes
Wags n' Whiskers #150--monochromatic
Crafty Ribbons--anything goes
Craftin' Desert Divas--Easter
Craft-Dee BowZ--anything goes with handmade bow

Stamps: Eureka Stamps "Small Draped Cross with Thorns"; Verve "Text Objects" outer sentiment; Flourishes Easter Set sentiment on the inside
Dies: Verve "Charming Ovals"; Spellbinders "Radiant Rectangles" and Gilded Life embossing strip
