I had to get really creative with my card for this event. I have very few Easter stamps in my stash and none of my Unity Stamps are Easter ones. I'm not into eggs or bunnies or crosses. In fact I don't celebrate Easter, but I definitely celebrate Resurrection Sunday. I am thankful that Christ died for my sins, but what greater celebration, then celebrating that he didn't stay dead. That is why I used the sheet music to CHRIST AROSE, for the base of my card. I printed it on my computer and burned the edges.  These are the Unity stamps that I did use on my card.

I thought it would be neat to wrap roses from my "garden" in newspaper. I stamped the newsprint onto a pale green piece of parchment and made a cone. The flower from well wishes I stamped twice on tan cardstock, same as sheet music and used that as a background to glue my quilled roses to. I stamped the butterfly twice, colored it and cut it in half and layered two of the left sides on top of eachother.
I added pearls, lace, ribbon and a patterned paper card with roses on it to finish it off.

Thanks for looking and leaving a comment it means a lot to me.
