Cased Easter Card

The Shining the Light challenge this week at Our Daily Bread Designs is "Secret Admirer" - to CASE someone else's card. I had seen a great design I wanted to use from a card on the gallery made by Sandee Shanabrough using He Is Risen stamp set. I loved the idea of using John 3:16 on an Easter card. It was one of the verses I learned as a child that helped me personally find Christ as my Savior.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have Eternal Life!"

The paper is from Basic Grey "Sugar Rush," using both sides of one paper,combined with Spring Iris and White Daisy cardstock from CTMH. The Spring Iris organdy ribbon has a thin satin loopy ribbon on top. The cross near the bow is from Jolee's boutique. The tiny flowers are Prima an the larger pink one is from Recollections. I used a Martha Stewart punch to make the Spring Iris feathery branches like the ones on Sandee's card. I added silver "pearls" to go with the silver cross and white pearls on the yellow flowers to go with the ones on the pink flower.

Thank you for visiting. May God bless you with many great ideas for cards for all the people your cards encourage!
