He Is Risen!!

Pin It

I just got a Stampin' Up order and HAD to find an excuse to use this beautiful stamp.  I've stated many times that I am a cardmaker that needs a starting point - sketch, colors...something.  So I found a sketch by one of my favorite cardmakers that she made for a new sketch challenge at Scrapbook Essentials BC.  I cheated a little as I didn't add a sentiment at the bottom, but I like the focus that the sketch puts on the stamp...


What would be perfect on this card is little gold beads or pearls at the base of each scallop to beautifully frame the image.  But my cards are for our church card ministry and the addition of 20+ beads on each of the four cards we make of this design becomes costly.  I think that's part of the reason I tend toward simple cards - I am always watching the bottom line!  (Of course, my husband regularly points out - and probably accurately - that if I gave the money to the church that I spent on my supply stash, they would make more than they do through the ministry.  But what would be the fun in that!!?)

Here's a close-up of the touch of glitter that I added to the dove...
