Did you think I got lost?

NEVER... I just had a busy weekend and didn't get a chance to upload anything.  I have also been working ahead on a few projects which I can't show off just yet!

Today is Monday and that can only mean one thing....

It's time for the HAPPY MONDAY CHALLENGE WITH DEEDEE'S DIGIS!

This week the challenge is to use PASTELS.

Easy peasy, you are thinking!

My card features "Christ is Risen" and was colored up with my Bic's and gel pens.  I do have to admit that it looks better in real life, since the cross glitters and is really highlighted.  I made it like a stained glass window and chose my colors to reflect the season!  The green is for the grass and blue, orange and  yellow for the grass and sun.  The pink and purple for The King.  I used some scraps from a recent baby album I made and used my nesties for some interest.  The corner is just some clear rhinestones.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you check out the Happy Monday Challenge for yourself!

Huggz,
April

This is really incredible, April -- LOVE the stained glass effect, and how you each of the colors stands for something. What a wonderful way to honor both our Lord's sacrifice and the beauty of the season in one card!
