Happy Resurrection Day!

Hello, sweet friends, and may I wish you a blessed and joyous Easter Sunday - Resurrection Day! He is risen indeed!

Yesterday I enjoyed coloring this lovely digital image from Marcella Hawley (which is now available in a clear set called Daffodils). It was so relaxing to sit and color while listening to beautiful music (in between doing laundry).

I made this card for two challenges on Splitcoaststampers. The first was Friday's Free for All challenge to use flowers (an easy one for me...hehe!), and the second was yesterday's Inspiration Challenge to be inspired by a previous card or cards you've made. I chose the French Lilac card and the Dancing Daffodil card a few posts ago. I used a fancy die and gilded edge from the lilac card and the oval shape from the other card that also had daffodils.

For this card, the image needed to be the main focus. These flowers are so beautiful (along with this adorable snail) and so much fun to color. I love daffodils and here in Florida periwinkle/vinca is everywhere in so many gorgeous colors. After coloring and die cutting, I started to figure out what card stock to use for the background. My first thought was to match the vinca, but I decided to use a soft blue...I think it works. Using my gold Krylon pen, I carefully gilded both the oval and the rectangle die. The rest was just gluing (and waiting for it to dry!). 

Thanks so much for "stopping by" and sharing a comment, thought or question, and I hope you have a wonderful week! And may I encourage you to remember that Christ Jesus is real, He is risen, and He reigns - today and every day. If you are a follower of Jesus, He is with you in whatever you are doing each and every day. Praise God!
