Easter Lillies

This week, our #29 challenge for your at Twist of Faith Cards, as an EASTER THEME! And of course, your creation is to include a scripture, quote or verse (that is positive, healing, encouraging or supportive).  Our sponsor is the wonderful Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps.

For this creation, I used our sponsor's image LILY ... when I saw the image, I had to create with this one!  Okay, I admit, I love lillies. 

I created my digi text... If you would like this text to use, I would be happy to email it to you... just leave a comment on my post or email me! I will soon organise a linked storage site for my goodies, but until then, you'll have to email me! 
I sized the image with my scripture, and also copied and flipped the image, to sit on both sides of my scripture.  After printing and trimming to size, I coloured the image with green marker and added blue and pink pearly chalks to the lily centres.  Plain. Simple. Bold.  I matted the image layer with purple card, then added strips of velvet ric rac ribbon.... how yummy is that ribbon! I then added a lighter shade paper matt, and another matt of the same purple cardstock.  All fixed together to a white cardbase.  

I was going to bling it a little, but couldn't decide where to add anything.  So I chose not to, leaving the images and scripture to BE the card.

I'm also sharing this card at:

what a 'peaceful' card if that makes sense. Love the ric rak ribbon. I think that's the beautiful thing about any biblical text, it's in itself very calming. thanks for sharing xx
