ODBDSLC231 Easter Inspiration

Welcome to the Easter Inspiration challenge this week at Our Daily Bread Designs.  Easter cards are just not sent out as often as Christmas cards though I think both days are equally important to our faith.  His resurrection is key and unique to Christianity.  So here's to more Easter cards!

Again, I just love this paper from ODBD and I didn't want to cover it up too much.  This month's new release has this wonderful background stamp of the hymn Christ Has Risen Today.  I used that to emboss on top of one of my shabby rose paper in white embossing powder.  I then trimmed it down with the largest pierced die from ODBD Flourished Star Pattern.  I stacked the larger cross from the Ornamental Crosses set 4 layers thick and then the smaller cross also four layers thick with the top being Pucker Me Pink craft metal sheet.  Finally, I added some thin ribbon and an Easter greeting from Earth's Gladdest Day cut with a Mini Tag Dies.  I used a very narrow ribbon to make a bow for the tag.  I hope you like it!
