Christ Is Risen!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!!  I hope you remembered to wear green today so that no one pinches you. :)  I was thinking I might have to spend the day in my jammies in order to wear green, but remembered an outfit I have with green in it.  Bummer!  There goes a good excuse for a comfy day in my jammies. lol
My card is made with the gorgeous Christ Is Risen digital stamp set by Deedees Digis.  I kept my card simple, because I wanted the beautiful cross image to be the only place your eye is drawn on this card.  I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils and oms and then coated it with a glaze pen to give it the appearance of a stained glass window.  I scored the edges of the dark purple layer and the corners of the shimmery lavender card, added 3 small rhinestones and that was it.
Maybe you can see the shine on the image better in this close up view.
Again, I kept the inside of the card simple, so that the focus would be on the words of this lovely sentiment, which is part of the Christ is Risen set.

  • For the past two nights a Mockingbird has been singing in our back yard between 12:30a.m. and 2:30a.m.  A very unusual, but beautiful occurrence.
  • We figured out what was making our little dog feel so bad and she's doing better.
  • My sweet husband, who is always there for me.  He's such a special man.
Have a wonderful day!!!  Don't forget to share a smile with someone. :)

Inky hugs!
