Vintage Easter Card

I wanted this Easter card to express the real reason for Easter. It doesn't have a cross or an empty tomb, but rather an expression of the love that Christ has for us all, which is, after all, the real reason He died and arose. The Graphics Fairy has so many free vintage images that are perfect for cards. I used one of their vintage Easter Cards to make this card.

I rotated this sketch from Sketch n Stash 180 degrees.

I printed the image on Epson mat photo paper, which helped bring out the rich colors. All of the designer papers (very old!!), cardstock, and pearls are from Close To My Heart. The pink lace was Offray's and the flower is from Recollections. I used a Spellbinder's Nestabilities rectangular die and the foliage . I inked the edges of the dp with CTMH Chocolate ink and scissor distressed all of the cardstock except the diecuts.

May your Easter be filled with love and blessings that you share with those around you!

Dream Valley #53 - Pearls and Lace
