COF challenge for March

Here's the challenge for the month of March for the Crafters of Faith:

Since we will be posting on Easter Sunday – March 31 – and since we are Crafters of Faith, I’d like us to create a religious-themed Easter card. No Easter bunnies and such, but instead a card that focuses on the Risen Lord! It can include Scripture and/or images, but needs to focus on the religious aspect of the holiday.

I used a white card because I always think of white for Easter. At my church this morning they had a huge cross covered with beautiful flowers. The cross I used is from Our Daily Bread Designs. I embossed the top and bottom of the card, and added punched flowers, leaves and a butterfly to adorn the cross. Pearls were added as flower centers and the butterfly's body.

I hope all of you had a blessed Easter filled with many Halleluia moments.

Oh Liz, this is beautiful! I really like how you embossed the top & bottom of the white CS, then mounted that gorgeous cross on top. The delicate colors of the flowers and butterflies are perfect and the small pearl accents add just the right touch.
So very, very pretty!
