Now on with the projects.

I decided to create an Easter card for this hop.
Using My Cricut Explore, I designed this card using four different cartridges and altering the card and window images to fit my card needs. I also cute two crosses in two different colors so I could layer the purple cloth over the brown cross.

 I added some stickles to the Gold Window frame. And used a patterned paper in hopes it would look like stained glass. It didn't turn out as I had hoped. My next one will be different. I also used liquid glass on the purple cloth and the blue bow. Added some hand stitching in white pen and some silk flowers with an enamel dot. The sequins in the top corners have liquid pearl dots.

This sentiment is my favorite. Taken from an online card. I printed it on my Cricut Explore using a Miss Kate type font. I just love it!
Wishing you a blessed Easter! 
As we say in my home Christos Anesti!!
