Trefoil Cross, FF38 & STS17

A single stamp that has been on my wish list for a while finally made it's way to my collection, Trefoil Cross. I'm so happy to have this new (to me) stamp. This simple expression of faith can be used for so many occasions including religious holidays and celebrations, or a simple sympathy card. I love it and know I'll use it for many years to come.

You know how much I like to play along with challenges! Today I am playing along with the subtle and elegant colors at Fab Friday and the layout at Seize the Sketch. I thought the two challenges combined made for a simple and sophisticated Easter card.

I cut the cross out by hand and popped it up with Dimensionals. The leaves were cut with the Bird Builder Punch, and the flower with the Boho Blossom Punch.

Stamp Sets: Trefoil Cross, Teeny Tiny Wishes
