ODBDSLC231-Religious Spring and Easter Inspiration

 Good morning!
Today is the start of our new challenge. See the photo below for the inspiration photo.
This week is Religious Spring and Easter Inspiration.

ODBD paper used: Soulful Stitches Collection
Well, my card this week is a little Easter, a little inspirational and a whole lot spring.
My basket is 3-D and FULL of flowers!! I used a craft stick as a gift card holder (my gift card in this case is a ticket to invite you to God's priceless gift of salvation.). Easter is the time when we celebrate the risen Savior.  I also added a cross "charm" to the basket with the bow. The basket sits on a pretty crochet doily but it is still on an outside table that is why we have our friend, Mr. Hummer visiting! I used the top border to represent a trellis or lattice work. 
I used a lot of dimensionals on this card to pop up the basket, some flowers the hummer, and etc. I'm not sure how practical it would be to send in the mail but if you have a church friend or someone you can hand deliver it to, then it would be perfect!

Please visit my design team sisters for more inspiration.

Please do not post on Flicker as many of us do not have the ability to comment on your cards nor can we spotlight your cards on the blog.

God's priceless you know what that is?  John 3:16 says that God so loved the world that He gave His only son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
v. 17
For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
Saved from what you might say. Well no matter what the "world" tells you, there are consequences for wrong doing (sin). His word says that the wages of wrong doing is death.  But the gift God gives us eternal life (not death) by believing in His only son Jesus Christ and believing He died for us and rose again from the dead and we can live forever with Him in paradise. Romans 6:23.
Please read for yourself and check out what I've told you. You should never except what another says about God without checking His word for yourself.
I hope you have enjoyed this little devotional.  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Wowzer Robin!! I so love the basket of flowers you created!! Your masking, layering, coloring, and dimension of all the flowers makes a stunning display!!! So colorful, cheerful, and springy! Gorgeous take on the inspiration my friend!

Oh, Robin! This is gorgeous, and I so love your beautiful bouquet in this basket! So much work but so worth it all...much like all that Jesus endured for us as He suffered, died, and rose again defeating sin and death - praise God! Thanks for sharing this beauty and your precious words of salvation through Christ! Hugs!

Dear Robin this is AMAZING! What an outstanding, inspiring and beautiful design. I love that you decided to mix all the different flower stamps to create a bouquet! Your coloring is also beautiful and the little details such as the cross tag the doily and background pattern are lovely!!! Not to mention the gorgeous hummingbird. I could keep "talking" all day long but I'll stop right here. You are an inspiration to all of us. Thanks! Hugs, Gracie.
