Card Contest Share #2

This was a super simple, but elegant at the same time type of card..  I wanted to have the cross to be the central focal point without a lot of other stuff distraction from it.  I first dry embossed the front piece of card stock with the Framed Tulip embossing folder. Next, I heat embossed the cross with black embossing powder and then colored in the leaves/flowers with markers.  The greeting was stamped twice, once with VerseMark (heat embossed with black embossing powder) then using my Stamp-ma-jig for positioning, I stamped "blessed" with VerseMark and green ink (heat embossed with clear embossing powder).  So, there you have it.  Super easy, but beautiful.
