AiFactory challenge: Clear & Simple


This week, the design team was given a set of flowers and asked only to make the image the centerpiece and include one clear item on our card.


 I really love the Easter lily since it reminds me of the true reason to celebrate Easter: Christ's death and resurrection on the cross to provide eternal life for me (and you) if I only believe that he is the only way to receive that eternal life. Amen!

The clear item on my card is the flourish. It's actually a single flourish from Sizzix (Nesting Swirls Set #2) that I cut in half to put it on either side of the flower. I colored the flower with Prisma pencils and OMS. Both the punched circle and the flower are popped up on pop dots. Lastly, I stamped a Scripture verse inside, Romans 5:8 - "But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

I used this week's sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You, entered it for this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger, and since Easter is a cause for joy, I entered it in this week's Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge, too.

Make sure you hop over to the rest of the design team, too, and then when you've made YOUR card, link it up on the AiF challenge blog! Thanks for stopping by to visit today!
