And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Happy Resurrection Day!

Happy Easter everyone!  What a gorgeous day in so many ways!  First…the weather is heavenly,  really springlike, finally!  Then there is the most amazing fact that Jesus rose again!  I am humbled by the fact that Jesus, the son of God, would willingly lay down His life for all mankind.  But, how hopeful we are that since He is no longer in the grave, we who put our faith and trust in Him, will also live forever. Praise the Lord!

Jesus bore the shame of the cross because of His love for us.  The quote by Billy Graham on my card for today says it all!
Creative Nugget:  The design of this card was taken from Seize the Sketch #18.  The Chalkboard Vine Background released this month by Our Daily Bread Designs was clear embossed on a piece of Basic Grey patterned paper.  A coordinating piece of DP was used on the top.  Both pieces were stitched to Smokey Shadow card stock and mounted to a Solar Crest card base.  The ODBD Custom Beautiful Border Die was cut from yet another coordinating piece of DP.  The sentiment is from The Cross stamp set and was cut using a Classic Oval die and mounted to a scalloped oval.  One of the Ornamental Cross dies was added along with some seam binding, Fancy Foliage Dies, and little flowers also from the Ornamental Crosses die set.  Pearls were scattered on the card front and placed in the centers of the flowers to finish the card.

Here are the supplies used from the 


This card will be entered in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Resurrection Day!

Hugs,
Cathy
