SSIC LOC Easter Cross

It is a special day today - Easter Sunday and I would like to wish you all a happy and blessed Easter!!

This week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge we are celebrating the resurrection of Christ, along with all believer world wide.  Our hostess today is the charismatic Rebekka and she has chosen the following scripture:

"and (Jesus) said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem."
Luke 24:46-47 ESV

Our challenge from Rebekka is to create a round card.

I have used the Layers of Color Gothic Crosses and Nature Walk art stamp sets for my card.

The Nature Walk art stamp set has been stamped onto the background and coloured with SU Chalks and a Blender Pen

The Gothic Cross has been stamp, coloured with SU Chalks and inked around the edges.  It has then been cut out and popped up on foam tape and a red heart bling has been added.

This square has been turned to make a diamond and then layered onto a black Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Pendant -what a gorgeous DieCut - it cut so beautifully with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur - it makes all the difference.

This card is for the following challenges:
Crazy for Challenges - Easter Card
Ellephantastic - Anything But Square or Rectangle
Totally Gorjuss - Bling It On
Delicious Doodles - Anything Goes
Fairy Knoll - Easter of Spring
Floweret - Easter
Inspire Me Fridays - Anything Goes
Paper Play - Easter or Spring
