Three Days Apart

This week's Shining the Light Challenge at ODBD is to make an Easter card that celebrates the true meaning of Easter which to me must include the cross.  I also wanted to make a card that was mostly white because He made us white as snow by dying on the cross for us.  I love the pink dogwoods and their symbolism.  The dogwood symbolism is tied to the crucifixion of Jesus. Legend, says dogwood was the wood used for the crucifixion cross and because of that, God ordered from that day forward the dogwood tree would never grow tall, but be cursed to be twisted and short. The center of the dogwood blossoms have clustered fruit resembling the crown of thorns.  Here I used some gold glitter for the center.  Thanks for looking!
