He Is Risen - TIME OUT #48 Challenge

OK, so I know I am really early with Easter, but my brain just went there! Please don't throw stones because I'm not sure how my brain goes "squirrel!" all by itself.

When I saw Marika's card at Time Out -

...my brain automatically when to "cross".  So, here's mine:

And a close-up to show the shine and dimension:

I had done the background paper quite some time ago, purple cs with VersaMark and heat embossed with holographic ep.  So, today I decided to use it added gold ribbon (royal colors!), cut the flourish from watercolor paper, colored with ZIG clean colors, then popped them up with some glue dots and some mini foam dots, and added pearls to the centers.  I stamped the sentiment and added it with a row of foam tape as well.  Oh, yes, I also painted on some gold Shimmer Mist onto the stems and small buds.

Hope you like it! Have a great weekend, and please stop by again!

CS: Neenan 80#, and watercolor paper
Ink:  VersaMark,  PTI Plum Pudding
Dies:  SSS Caliope Flourish, My Craft Spot (closed) Ornate Labels
