CAS on Sunday Challenge is to use glitter. On this ivory card, I used Martha Stewart's mica flake glitter that I adhered with double stick tape. The stamped sentiment is from Sweet and Sassy.
The ivory cardstock is Recollection 110 weight paper. This was made in less than 10 minutes, so it is quick and easy, yet elegant enough to add a glimmer of hope in even the darkest moments. Have a blessed week.

This is for the ODBDSLC which is a sketch challenge. I decided to use this butterfly stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs and mask it and repeat the butterflies. This plaid design paper had so many wonderful spring colors in it that I decided to use some of those colors as the butterfly colors. The purple flower is stamped from the Sweet Williams set from ODBD as well and diecut with the matching die. The lace is a lacey border trim from Spellbinders.

Today's cross is from Our Daily Bread Designs as is the sentiment. I used some pretty metalic copper paper and also embossed with copper embossing powder on the cross and sentiment. The card base was put through a cuttlebug folder. I added the flowers and pearls. The cross says it all for me for Easter. It instantly reminds me of all the love Christ has for me, all so I can be redeemed from my sins. It sets me free of the bondage that sin has on our lives and as one contemporary song states, "The cross was enough, the cross was enough." The cross stamp is an old favorite of mine from Our Daily Bread Designs. The sentiment is also a ODBD.
As I survey the wonderful cross, on which the Prince of Glory died, My richest gain, I count but lost,
and pour contempt on all my pride.
This cross is a stamp from Inkadinkado. How blessed we are that there are companies out there who design beautiful Christian symbols. Thanks, Inkadinkado, Stampablities, Our Daily Bread Designs, Verve, Eureka, and Sweet and Sassy Stamps. These companies have created some of my favorite crosses and scripture stamps I have in my collection.

A few lovely lyrics of a beautiful song "Lead me to the Cross" remind me of the love that is represented by the cross:
Lead me to the Cross, where your love poured out.
Rid me of myself, I belong to You.
I inked this embossing folder with rose bud Memento ink and then put pink pirouette paper into the folder (Cuttlebug - Anna Griffin) I used a cross diecut from Our Daily Bread, smaller cross from Verve, and the flourish is from MFT.

Today is Palm Sunday, and I attended worship at the Hub today at my church. I decided to just stamp branches of leaves all over my card in the shape of a cross and place my Darice cross embossing folder over the stamped portion and emboss the words that are in the shape of a cross. They I rubbed a small black ink pad over the embossed area. This was the results and I really liked the way it turned out.

Quick and easy and yet so elegant. The sentiments with this set are such great ones.
