I am the Resurrection

Oh my goodness...I just had to share this card with you...it is now midnight, I have worked on this for about 2 hours! I am sooooooooo slow in making cards! I absolutely LOVE this sentiment from Squigglefly! This is designed by Roanne Mathias and is simply called Resurrection. Immediately when I got this in my hands, I knew what I wanted to do with it. The shape that I cut out on my cricut is one of Penny Duncan's Shaplies called Open Book...I followed Penny's awesome directions on how to cut AND emboss my shape and then created two more of the same in a little larger size. Tried to get the look of a book....in my mind...the Bible. And the cross is one of Penny's svg files as well. If you have not been out to visit Penny, please do...she is one talented lady and she LOVES flowers! You have got to see those flowers! After stippling my creation with Tim Holtz antique linen distress ink, I matted my "book" on a sheet of white paper that had been embossed with the Linen embossing folder from Paper Trey Inc...I am not sure it shows up well in the pic but in real life it is pretty. Take a hop on over to Squigglefly today and look around...there are so many awesome new releases, I just want them all! Well I hope my card for today inspires you to create. Have a Blessed day and thanks so much for stopping in to see me. I will be by to see each of you later on today.
HUGS!
