AN EASTER CARD FOR YOU ALL ...

I have used an image from Digistamps 4 Joy to create this card, with a sentiment that I found on the internet.  I was particularly drawn to the sentiment because it sums up what Easter is all about ... in one simple sentence.  Forget the bunnies and the chickens, the choccies and the hot cross buns ...

Easter is all about the promise of hope and life everlasting....


I coloured the image using alcohol markers and a white gel pen to create some woodgrain in the Cross.  An oval die was used to cut out the image, and I sewed on the flower sequin and beads to attach the diecut to the white textured CS background.  


I would like to add this card to the following challenges

  4. This is beautiful and amen to the sentiment and I have to agree, if it was not for the empty cross we would not have celebrated Easter.
