Happy Easter! (MOJO187)

Happy Easter! I hope you all had a very blessed day! :) I had the big family gathering at my house today, it was really fun! There was a beautiful church service this morning, and I think the stress of the last year is finally starting to wane. Both my friends with cancer have had clear scans recently! Yea! :) I do still have some friends who are having trouble, and I made this for one of them. This is following the sketch over at Mojo Monday 187. This is a departure from much of what I've been doing lately. Darker, richer, and some copper thrown in for good measure.

I had picked up these hand made papers several weeks ago, as my nearby Xpedx was going out of business, and they had all their stock at 40% off. No brand on these, but they sure are pretty! I used solid cardstock in Rich Razzleberry, Elegant Eggplant, Ivory, and a copper metallic. This sheer ribbon was the only one I had that would work on these papers, though I wish I'd had something in satin that was a little wider. The button is from my reclaimed jar. I think that's it for today! 

1 Peter 1:18-19 

18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.

Have a blessed week!

DUST IT OFF!: Punches, and those old buttons and scraps of ribbon, you never know when they'll come in handy! :)
