Easter Blessings...

Today I'm sharing some very special cards with you.  I just fell in love with the New Life Collection from Heartfelt Creations and was inspired to create this distressed card using the Wrought Iron Cross Precut Set.  The sentiment is from Decorative Vintage Cross Precut Set.  I was constantly reminded of the shabby-distressed metal work found on walls and in outdoor gardens so I wanted to create something similar.  The cross was created by distressing ink over the top of the white embossing powder then adding additional gold rub-n-buff. It turned this cross into something fabulous!!!  The cross also had another purpose to add a beautiful filagree border around the rich burgundy background. 
For my next card, I continued on working with the New Life Collection.  The Three Crosses is a true symbol of the ultimate I used the set called Easter Lilies Precut Set.  I hope I did it justice. 
I first stamped the Vintage Life Background stamp then I used some silver holographic embossing powder to create a little hint of shimmer/sparkle on the crosses.  To add extra highlight, I applied bling to the centers of each cross. 
As with all my Heartfelt Creations cards and projects, directions (PDF) are available if you are interested.  Just post a comment or send me an email and I'd be happy to share. 

Please stop over at the Heartfelt Creations blog today and Every Wednesday for more inspirational work from other designers. 
And for my final creation...a simple sketch for you to play with...
 Added some stardust stickles to give it the traditional pop of sparkle!!!

This card was created using a simple sketch and the egg image was colored and applied to ribbon.  The Egg Citing Day Precut Set
