Happy Resurrection Day!!! -- The Wondrous Cross

He has risen, just as he said!
                                                                                From Matthew 28:6



Hi, Friends......

I'm here with an Easter card to share with you today and to wish each of you a blessed and joyful Easter.

The sacrifice of Jesus Christ, God's son, on the cross to pay for the sins of each of us.....and His resurrection on the third day....is central to my life.  Because of that, I am sharing a sacred Easter card for my Resurrection Day post.  

I made the background by applying Distress inks (Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry) directly to my Darice - Crosses embossing folder.  I misted it gently with water, and ran it through my Big Shot with watercolor paper.  LOVE this pretty pastel-to-bright watercolor look!!



The crosses and sentiment are from a retired Clear Dollar Stamp set - Jesus Paid it All.  Perfect for Easter!  I stamped the crosses once on scrap paper and then onto watercolor paper for a muted effect.  The sentiment was stamped directly.  I used Distress Ink - Salty Ocean for both.



















Blessings to each of you this special day of celebration!!!!  I pray that you also know the love, forgiveness, and new life that comes through Jesus Christ.
