He is Risen!

I didn't get many Easter cards made in time to send out this year, but I've managed to make one for our elderly neighbours who are so kind to our boys, and have treated them like the grandchildren they've never had.  I'm thankful for lovely people like that as my family live so far away in the U.S.!
I made it with the layout from the Sketch Challenge at Splitcoaststampers today, using Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Calvary die and a sentiment from SNSS's Easter Blessings set.
Still besotted with Basic Gray's Lucille dp which I seem to be using on every other card, the combination of aqua and coral really appeals to me!
I sponged the sky using SNSS's Cloud and Raindrops dies and a Nestie Circle cut from post-it-notes.
Those empty crosses not only remind me of Jesus' death, but the sunrise reminds me that though it seemed darkness and death had won, when the sun rose on that first Easter morning, there was an empty grave too - Jesus had risen and there was new hope for everyone!
Wishing you all a meaningful Easter filled with hope because of His resurrection!
Supplies include:
Nestabilities Ovals Petite Large, Small
Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles Small
Sewing machine
Prima Flowers
Basic Gray Lucille dp
Stampin Up Blushing Bride, Pool Party ink

Beautiful card! I had this stamp set in my hand at my LSS, and put it back...(thinking I wouldn't have time to do anymore Easter cards...but after seeing your card...I wish I had purchased it...
Your card is so nicely done.
