Blogger's Challenge--Easter!

I just love how this card turned out!  Isn't this a beautiful cross, made with all Easter Lilys.  It is not a Stampin Up! stamp.  I was going to go through all my non-Stampin Up! stamps and start getting rid of them since there are hundreds and I NEVER use them.  But instead I found this first box and made this card instead.  I used the bouncing brayer technique with Crushed Curry.  The cross is colored in with Copics and cut out.  I then edged it with black to make it pop.  The sentiment is Stampin Up!  Don't forget to see what the rest of the Blogger's challenge girls are doing by clicking the link with the logo in my side bar!  Off to go fishing!  It is beautiful out side today!

Mary-Jo, I LOVE this card!! I'm gonna have to find the instructions for the bouncing brayer technique!! I imagine it's on SCS or TJNL. I LOVE the Crushed Curry rays coming out from the cross, proclaiming that Christ died and ROSE AGAIN for everyone who will come to Him!! God bless you and Happy Easter!
