Blessed by Florals for JAI #453

Happy Good Friday and I hope that it's the start of a happy and peaceful Easter weekend for you and all your families and especially for those who are enjoying time away during the school holidays break. Sad news that Notre Dame won't be open for Easter services this year after a serious fire but thankfully it is not completely destroyed and can be rebuilt for another generation to enjoy it's amazing architecture and contribution to history.

Just in time for the long weekend is our new challenge at Just Add Ink! This Choose Two of the three options (Bunnies, flowers or Crosses) was my suggestion and I hope that you enjoy this Easter inspired challenge but don't feel limited to making Easter creations. The design team have created a gorgeous mix of cute and pretty to inspire you so I hope that can take a moment to pop on over and we'd love you to join us!!

For my card, I combined Crosses from the retired Blessed By God set with florals in the current Wonderful Romance suite to create a card for a friend. Originally I also wanted to use all retiring colours too but found the pinks went better with different greens for this card. 😊

The simple Cross is embossed in White on the Powder Pink layer and the sentiment is coloured using a Blender Pen to apply the inks to the stamp. It was the look of the leaves from the romance dies that saw me buy this set but funnily enough this is the first time I have used them tho it definitely won't be the last! They look even better in person than in photos and they cut and emboss beautifully!

These little flowers are stamped from the main flower spray of Wonderful Romance, coloured and fussy cut and filled with a Rhinestone.
