Stampin' Sisters in Christ #84

I had to use a cross for this challenge because of the Mark 15:17 scripture used this week:
 THEY PUT A PURPLE ROBE ON HIM, TWISTED A
CROWN OF THORNS,
AND SET IT ON HIM.
The cross is from Inkadinkado, and the quote is from Our Daily Bread.  The cross is embossed in gold, and the quote is stamped in Tuxedo black ink. The embossing folder is from Sizzix. The paper punch is from EK.
I added a rhinestone cross to the middle of the cross. The purple card stock is the prettiest purple in my opinion on the market. It is from Mark's Finest Papers and is called Grandmother's Favorite Purple.
You won't want to miss Kris' devotional today over on Stampin' Sisters in Christ's blog. It is so perfect for the Lenten season.
