ODBDSLC232-Anything Goes with ODBD Stamps

Good morning!!
Today starts another challenge! This is the last challenge of the month and it is "anything goes"!
ODBD stamps used: The Cross
ODBD dies used: Doily, Ornamental Crosses, Flourished Star Pattern, Elegant Ovals, Vintage Flourish Pattern
ODBD papers used: Shabby Rose Collection
The first layer is the outer die of the Flourish Star Pattern, it has the little stitch piercings on the edges.  I then cut the Vintage Flourish Pattern and trimmed it down to fit inside of the stitches.  I embossed the largest size of the Vintage Flourish cut outs (an oval type shape) inside the solid part of the Vintage Flourish Pattern. I cut the Doily out of the Shabby Rose Collection and popped it up. The cross was cut from the same cardstock as the Vintage Flourish Pattern then backed with white.
The verse was stamped and cut out with the Elegant Ovals and popped up.
I added the pre-made leaves and flowers and made a bow from some dyed ribbon.
See more inspiration from my design team sisters!

Easter is coming up in a few days.  The cross is where He died but the grave could not keep Him.  He had victory over death and the grave.  He rose again from the dead.  He is alive and He lives and reigns with God our Father in heaven.  We can be with Him forever just by accepting Him as our Lord and Savior. John 5:24 Jesus words..."Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgement, but has passed from death into life."
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:36 He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.
God gives us the choice, He does not force us to love Him or believe in Him but if we do, He give us grace, mercy and blessings in this life and He gives us life everlasting in the next. You can be clean inside, your sins forgiven, just ask Jesus to forgive you of all your sin and turn away from wrong doing.
Everyone dies and no one knows when...make your choice today. Chose life!
