Crafters of Faith ~ He is Risen

Today is the last day of the month and I am here to welcome you to my Crafters of Faith card! The Crafters of Faith blogging group is a joyous blending of Christian friends ~ joined together to fellowship, share our faith, build friendships and craft together!

This is our March Challenge—as posed by Jeanette:

Since we will be posting on Easter Sunday – March 31 – and since we are Crafters of Faith, I’d like us to create a religious-themed Easter card. No Easter bunnies and such, but instead a card that focuses on the Risen Lord! It can include Scripture and/or images, but needs to focus on the religious aspect of the holiday.

He is not here; he has risen! (Luke 24:6)

I have a few Easter stamps, but this is one of my favorites.  I have not used it for a few years--so I thought it was time to give it a nod.   I wanted the image to be the highlight of this card, so the only added embellishment was a ribbon.  I did use a white gel pen over the lilies so they would be brighter.

Here is the inside of my card:

Image/Sentiment—Northwoods Rubber Stamps Easter Cross/For He is Risen

CardstockStampin’ Up Chocolate Chip Certainly Celery, Daffodil Delight, Certainly Celery DSP

Ink—Memento Tuxedo Black; SU Certainly Celery

Accessories—Copic Markers; White Gel Pen; SU Stripes Embossing Folder; Green Ribbon

I have entered this card in the following challenges:
The Squirrel and The Fox ~ Easter
One Stop Craft ~ Easter
Dilly Beans ~ Easter
Stamping with Dragon ~ Easter
4 Crafty Chicks ~ Easter
CCEE Stampers ~ Oldies but Goodies

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you do check out the other new creations from the wonderful ladies in the Crafters of Faith group! The blog list is on the left side--please check out all of the cards.

This is gorgeous Barb! Love the colors & that ribbon you used!!!

WOW!!! Barb, I absolutely love your stunning card! What a gorgeous cross! And the way colored those lilies is amazing! I must try that sometime! I also love the fact that you kept the card sort of simple so the cross would be the focus of it.

The inside is equally wonderful, too.

I am so glad to call you my friend - and my sister in Christ!

I ♥ you, my Faith-Filled Friend!

I think you must have stopped by my Church ~ this cross is very similar to ours!
I like that you used a neutral dp to set off the image!

He has risen indeed! Happy Easter to you and yours!

Beautiful Easter card and I love how you've done the dsp two ways. Both the texture and the stripes really make that green pop and draw my eye right to your BEAUTIFULLY colored image! hugs, kadie
