May You Be Blessed

I love the Stained Glass Background from Heartfelt Creations and thought I'd play around with some Glimmer Mist Techniques to create a colorful background.  I've tried many different card stocks for Glimmer Mist and have found I like to use the Marco Matte Finish the best.  For the BG I used Olive/Turquoise/Scarlet and Sunflower Glimmer Mists with the Glimmer Mist Watercolor Technique from the April 2010 Technique Junkie Newsletter.

I thought this card would be perfect for a Communion, Confirmation, Baptism or Easter

The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3366 Wrought Iron Cross PreCut Set, stamped in Black, then I overstamped the Crosses in Caramel from the HCPC 3370 Easter Lilies PreCut Set.  The beautiful flourish die cut end pieces can be found in the Heartfelt Creations HCD 702 Decorative Butterfly-Border Die.  I slipped the center under the Oval Spellbinders Die, and flipped the two corners over the top, and added some lovely Recollections Roses to match the Glimmer Mist BG.
