One Stitch at a Time Challenge 155

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we're challenging you to leave your patterned papers in the drawer/cupboard/ or wherever you store them! And, you can go further, keeping everything in the background plain white (although that's not a requirement!)

We're sponsored by

See the Challenge Blog for details.

I decided to get started on some Easter cards, and I chose a fabulous image from Hope Jacare called Thistle Cross. (Even better as I'm s Scot!)

I added the words in Photoshop Elements before printing, then coloured with Promarkers.

I decided I'd keep the rest (almost) white, but I did use some purple card to separate the various layers. The image is cut using a die by Nellie Snellen, and the embossing uses folders by Crafters Companion.

I hope you can join us this week.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Card Maniac Challenges where they want lots of layers. (I've used 6 - hope that's enough!)
Digi Makeover where the theme is Easter,
Paper Playtime where anything goes,
Without Words where the theme is Easter/Renewal,
Inkspirational Challenges where they've got some photo inspiration (I've used the colours),
Tuesday Alchemy where anything goes,
A Gem of a Challenge where the theme is Easter/spring,
Lady Anne where anything goes,
Polkadoodles where they want Easter projects,
Di's Digis where the theme is Easter/spring
