Easter Cross Card CDAC Embellishment challenge 19

Nana Vic's Digitals is proud to be hosting round 19 of the Embellishment Challenge. My digital line of stamps mainly centers around my 2 favourite seniors 'Nana Vic' and her good mate 'Mr Jones', however I do from time to time venture out of their world to create special stamps for different occasions. I am blessed to share with CDAC this new design especially created for this challenge, at the same time of creating this design I also put together a new 'Easter 1' word art sheet.

With Spring in the air and Easter so close, it's time to celebrate new beginnings. The embellishment challenge is to use flowers and lots of them. Your project is to include 2 or more flowers in any size or colour or medium.

'Easter Cross' and 'Easter Set 1' word art are both available now in my store. The 'Easter Cross' is also available for free for the next two weeks to all that join in the challenge at CDAC. So if you'd like to pick up the 'Easter Cross' for free considering joining a wonderful site that is always fun and a great place to hang out.

I coloured the cross twice and glued them back to back with a piece of string running between the two circles. I cut a larger circle in the front of my card and stitched the background paper inside and around the circle. The string I made sure that I caught in the stitching so that the cross part of the card can rotate. I used the circle that I cut out of the front as a border for the sentiment to be displayed on inside.

All the flowers are from my stash and the white netted one with the gold wire is an embellishment that my sister made for her daughters wedding. There was sugar coated almonds inbetween each of the folded petals, even tho I ate the almonds the flower I keep to use again. I created the arrangement around the white netted one and I also used 2 pin sticks that I'd made to add just a touch of bling.

Below is the inside of the card and I decided that I needed to keep it simple. The only embellishment is the stitching around the sentiment.

My good friend Carol also made a card for me using the 'Easter Cross' Please be sure to pop over to her blogsite and leave her some lov'n and to check out her details.

I am giving away $30 is Vouchers for 3 lucky winners in this challenge.
