Here is my take on the Challenge......My favorite Easter Set is an older SU Set called *Glorious Gift*. I always love this powerful Bible Verse and it just says it all!!!
I also love the softer sublet colors with my Easter cards....For this card I used - Bashful Blue, So Saffron, White, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery.
I inked the the flower image first with So Saffron, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery. Next I stamped the Bible Verse with Basic Black on top. I distressed and added some Candle Light Shimmerz to the edges. After I was done with the main image I decided to ad a hint of Shimmerz to the flowers too :) - you can see it better on the smaller photo!!!
The card base is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". The first layer is Bashful Blue. Next I added the Designer Paper is from the SAB *Delicate Dots* Collection. I created the border with the Martha Stewart Punch. The main image was layered onto Pretty in Pink CS and I pierced right around the edges. To dress it all up I used the White Satin Ribbon, a large So Saffron matching button plus my favorite Silver Pearls (he,he,he)!!!
Now I can't wait to see your fabulous creations.....I'll be checking you all out :)!!! Remember there is no time limit to this Challenge, but if you want to win the 2RedBananas Set you have to get crackin'!!!
Have a great weekend!!! ~TFL~
