The Card Concept: Our Redeemer Lives

 It's time for a new challenge at The Card Concept: Spring Garden. My Clean and Simple card was inspired by the spring theme, the garden of flowers and the colors. 

Our Redeemer Lives

I meant to use the colors identified on the bottom of the inspiration. In fact, the colors are what inspired me to pull out this die.  I thought a kraft-colored cross surrounded by flowers would be gorgeous but I got it all together and I just felt it needed to be brighter. The flowers on the boots include yellow so I traded out my kraft colors for yellow and it's just the bright and cheerful look that I wanted.

Our Redeemer Lives

I know it didn't show up well in my photos, but the sentiment is gold-embossed and says "Our Redeemer Lives". I sponged the edges of the cross with some yellow to give it a little dimension. I layered the die cut three times and then cut it again in blue, green and deep pink using the individual pieces in my die cut.  For a bit more dimension, I added three little pearl "berries".

I want to send hugs and prayers to the Card Concept team - it's been a tough few months for many. 
Because He lives
I can face tomorrow
Because He lives
All fear is gone
Because I know
He holds the future
And life is worth the living
Just because He lives
I hope to see you playing along with us at The Card Concept.
