Easter Wishes

Hi all, it's time for another mid challenge posting for Digistamps4Joy. Our challenge this fortnight was chosen by my wonderful teamie Annie and she has chosen Vintage. Now I don't know about all of you, but Vintage is a real challenge for me lol. I love the look of vintage cards but didn't think I actually had the knack for them. But, I think I might have actually done it for this one. 

I chose to use the image The Empty Cross for an Easter card that I wanted to make for my parents. And this is what I came up with. 
The sentiment in the oval is from by John Bratton
The sentiment on the bottom is from Papercraft Memories and says

When Jesus rose to new life,
     He brought us a promise...
     a promise to be with us always.
     And you can be sure that
     He is watching over you this Easter...
     Just as He has always taken care of those he loves.

     Have A Blessed Easter
So now it's your turn to show us what you got. Just head on over to our Challenge Blog and check out the rules and what fabulous prizes we have to win. And while you're there, check out the fab creations that my teammates have come up with, you'll be glad you did.

Me again, the DP on the Outlawz card is actually an 8 x 8 embossing folder by Crafters companion and I inked the folder before putting it through my GC
