Easter blessings to you all.

This is a second entry for the ODBD challenge this week. I followed a sketch on Cardmaking Paradise blog for the layout....see sketch 3. 

The background paper was made by blending distress ink and stamping repeatedly with the ODBD verse from the Christ is Risen set and finished with the small lily as the focal point.

He is Risen....

Challenge on ODBD for the next two weeks is 'The true meaning of Easter.' I used the lovely ODBD grunge cross stamp and die for this clean and simple card.


Easter cross

Clean and Simple.

I was inspired by a design on the Craft Barn Blog by Isabelle Norris and made this card for the ODBD challenge this week......Spring has Sprung! well maybe someone could tell the weather man!! as its snowing here and a bitterly cold wind.

I used a  verse from the ODBD stamp set 'I am the way' with distress ink Shaded Lilac and Squeezed Lemon to stamp a background on the main card. Then on a seperate piece of card I stamped the ODBD grunge cross background coloured with the same ink and cut out a cross using the ODBD grunge cross die. I also stamped the lily from the set, coloured and cut it out for the centre of the cross and finished with the sentiment in lilac and shaded with lemon.

Sorry its such a poor photo
