I was able to work with this gorgeous Cross and Flowers image by Robyn's Fetish.

I had so much fun with this image. I used my watercolors to color in this image. I wanted to make the cross look like weathered wood. I was actually pleased with how this turned out. I also flicked a few grass strands to make it look like it was sitting in a field of grass instead of just on a hilltop. Once my image was dry I adhered it to a piece of royal blue cardstock from Recollections. Then I added that to a piece of yellow cardstock that was embossed with my "climbing roses" embossing folder. The entire card was then adhered to my card base which measures a tad bit over 5 by 7. The sketch was a great starting point for me this week but I took it and tweaked it a bit. I punched out some butterflies from a butterfly punch and added a few sparkly embellies to the centers and then adhered two of them flying up the card and the last one toward the bottom more. This is supposed to be where the stars are on the sketch. Then for my sentiment, I stamped the "prayers" from a My Favorite Things stamp onto some white cardstock and created some fishtails. I thought to make this a bit smaller so that it could fit across the front of the cross. I like how the bright white pops off the cross. All in all, this is a different sized card then what I normally would make but I really do like how it turned out. I hope you like it too.
