Penelope Easter Card

I love the colors of SPRING! They seem to wake me up after a drab season of winter colors. My yard is wrapped in pastel blooming bulbs and trees. Today two plum trees are in bloom, one white and one purple. Here's another Easter card reflecting these spring colors and the resurrection message: The Lord reigns; let the earth REJOICE! That's exactly what my trees and bulbs are doing on this sunny day!

I usually use my Cricut Explore to cut dies, but our computer connection has been spotty for a couple of weeks so I used four different punches instead. I'm also keeping this short while I have a connection! The Penelope papers, the Rejoice stamp set, and the Gray enamel gems are all CTMH.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Lots of wonderful papers in this creation. Love the happy colors! Sorry for this delayed comment but just want to thank you for blessing us with this entry on our previous Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Hope to see you back in our new Challenge. Want to share a Word from the Lord found in 1 Samuel 2:9 and it says, "He will guard the feet of his faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness. "It is not by strength that one prevails." Have a blessed day!
