Easter is Coming......

When I first saw one of Robyn's new stamp sets, More Faithful Sayings I got an idea immediately for a card. You can find out how to order the set HERE. This is the set...
I have been wanting to use the cross from the Easter 2010 Cricut Cartridge since I got it last year, but have never gotten around to it. I love this image....being Greek, it is the closest thing I have found in Cricut to a traditional Byzantine Greek Cross which I am sort of obsessed with. I love the shape and have many of them both to wear and around my house. Here is an example of one....this one also has the Greek Key, which I am also obsessed with and the only reason I wanted Picturesque for. on to my card. Super simple, but that is the way I think it should be. And...of course, gold....what would something Greek be if it wasn't gold!

I used my Gypsy to make the card base. I welded two Easter Eggs together (fitting I think).
Cricut Cartridges Used: Easter 2010 Limited Edition
Cross = 3.25"
Egg = 5.83 x 2
Scallop = 5"
Scallop Base = 4.34"

I'll be back next week with a busy Blogging week. Monday thru Friday I am Guest Designing again for Everyday Cricut and then on Friday we have our Monthly My Pink Stamper Blog Hop. I will have give-a-ways for both. 
Hope to see you then :)
