{everlasting} life

This week was rather busy around here, but fortunately my schedule freed up enough that I was able to make an Easter card for my sweet hubby.  My inspiration was this week's Mojo Monday sketch...again. ;P  If you look closely, you may notice that some more of those luscious Linen Closet papers found their way to my crafting table --thanks again, Mom!  ;)

I wanted the beauty and simplicity of the cross to be the focus, so I didn't color it in...just used some pastel green glitter pen to give it a subtle shimmer and sponged on some blue in the background.  The one-line sentiment was broken up to make it fit the small panel.  I'm sure my hubby will appreciate the {relative -lol!} un-fussiness of this much so that I probably should've restrained myself and saved the pearls for another card {oops}.

ETA:  Not sure what's up with the right side of the card being cut off, but trust me, it's there...and balanced. ;P

So much more than bunnies, baskets, and candy, Easter is a time to celebrate what Christ did for us on the cross over 2,000 years ago...the very reason we can have hope and the promise of everlasting life.  What an unfathomable gift --Happy Easter weekend! ;D

Thanks so much for the visit, and I hope you'll stop by again soon.  Until then, many Easter blessings to you!
