Flowered Cross

Easter is coming fast upon us being on April 1st this year -  so I'm already making cards for it.
I die cut the cross out of Vintage Cream Linen card using a really old Nestability Cross die.  I layered it over this lovely floral patterned paper on foam dots and onto a Vintage Cream Linen card base.  I used dies from Noted: Scalloped A2 set by PTI to cut the paper and the card base.

I stamped an old foam stamp sentiment in black on Vintage Cream Linen and punched it with an oval punch.  I layered that in the center of the cross with foam dots and then layered these pretty Prima flowers around the cross using various thickness of foam dots.

I made this card today for the Splitcoaststampers Mixability Challenge where we are to use patterned paper background and NOT cover it all up!

I'm linking my card to:

This is such a pretty card for Easter - I like the background paper you used- florals always work for a Spring themed card- hope the church sale goes well
