Not Your Typical Easter Card

How often do you find yourself wishing you had "one of those neat crafting tools" or "that crafty supply"?  Do you find yourself working on a project and saying, "I wish I had "so and so" so I could blah, blah, blah."  Well I do, all too often, and this card is a prime example.  
Two or three weeks ago I saw on another blog (sorry I didn't make note of the name, but it was something to do with a cat or kitty.... wow, like that does a lot of good!)  Anyway, the blogger made a cross and she made it like you would make a pleated rosette.  Her cross was rather large and I thought, I bet I could do that small enough to go on a card, and so I did.  
I won't go into all the things I would have liked to have done, or would have done differently on this card, but hey, you do what you can with what you've got, right?  And besides, this message is so beautiful and so powerful it really doesn't matter what the card looks like.  
Various Spellbinders dies, Gold Perfect Pearls, and the sentiment is by Studio G.
Happy & Blessed Holy Week everyone.
