ODBD Love of Crosses Blog Hop

Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop. This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop For the Love of Crosses! Check out each link and leave a comment.
 
If you get lost along the way, be sure to check out the full list of links below. One of the posts is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate. 
 
So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love! You have until Wednesday, April 10th, at 6 pm. Enjoy all the beautiful designs featuring For the Love of Crosses!

If you arrived here from the fabulous Chris' Blog you are in the right place....
 
Here is my card featuring Crown of Thorns..
 
 
and the set shown here...
 
 
I used a soft brown ink to stamp the image of Christ and a darker one for the sentiment.  This time I elected to put both on the same panel instead of using a die cut.  A bit of twine adds a rustic element to the card.  I chose muted tones of blue and kraft for this one.  I didn't want to detract from the powerful image and scripture.  Thanks so much for stopping by and blessings to you as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.  I will sent you on to your next stop... the ever fabulous Grace...   Blessings....
 
Here is today's blog hop order.

What a beautiful presentation using Christ with the crown of thorns. This image reminds me of not only Christ's love for us in His death, but the horrific pain He endured in dying to save us.

I saw your card after watching the movie, "The Passion of Christ". Your choice of stamp image and sentiment makes this Easter season more profound. Thank you for making the card, Lori!
