The Lord Has Risen!

Happy Monday!  I am back after a long weekend getaway with my sis to the Outer Banks!  We had a blast and shopped til we dropped!  WooHoo!  Fun times!  Anyway, I got up bright and early and all rested this morning to head to my craft room for some crafty time.   This card is for a couple of challenges.  It is for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge to make an Easter card.  You still have  a few days left to enter to be eligible for a $15 ODBD gift certificate.  Also, I am playing along with Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Sketch7.   

For my card I am using the newly release set Bird Borders & Corners, along with The Lord Has Risen, and Butterfly single stamp and die.  I am using some Prima Madeline designer paper for the background and decided to use the Bird Borders & Corners to coordinate with the designer paper.  I wanted to go with some warmer tones for this Easter card.  I stamped these images directly to the Prima ruled designer paper that comes in the set.  I stamped the border along the bottom in ranger stormy sky.  I then added some of the sprigs in the set using only the vintage photo ink.  The larger bird image I used in the top right corner mixing some stormy sky and vintage inks to stamp that look.  I stamped my butterfly with momento tuxedo black and colored with Copics BG10, BG11, BG72, BG75.  I used my glue pen to add some sparkle to the butterfly.  I finished with a crinkle ribbon bow, button, gold cording, and goldtone cross charm. 

I am playing in a few other blog challenges.
