Old Rugged Cross...

A great Gospel Hymn and a fabulous image to go with it by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps! They have a lot of wonderful digital images for Easter, whether it be religious or whimsical you prefer. I love the "Old Rugged Cross" and I used the new Egg Nestabilities for the frame. (Robin? Do you have the eggs? Oh wait, you don't!)

I printed the cross onto Whisper White cardstock, then colored with Copic Markers. I sponged Memento Summer Sky ink all around the image then laid it aside. My background is white glittery cardstock,  and I embossed with the Textile folder in the Cuttlebug. I cut out the center using the largest Egg Nestabilities, then added decorative pearls around the edge. I mounted my cross to the back of this then added a fancy tag with ribbons and pearls. My sentiment is from Studio G. I adhered the cross panel to glittery purple cardstock, then to a sky blue card. Card size: 4 3/4 x 6 inches
