"Easter Blessings" - Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge

Welcome to another Simply Sunday Challenge over at Getting Cricky.  Today's challenge is to make an Easter project.  Now I love to celebrate Easter.  I am so thankful that Jesus rose again from the grave and this is the perfect time to celebrate that!

I made a card for today's project and I used 2 sets of stamps from K. Andrew Designs - Fall-O-Ween and Scripture Sayings.  Kristal, from K. Andrew Designs donates a portion of the proceeds from each set of stamps to charity.  It is also very important to her that they are made in the USA.  You are helping others when you purchase these stamps.  Click on the images below to find out more information about these great sets.

Now for today's project.  This card was pretty simple once I designed it and found the papers I wanted to use.
I used Vintage Cream card stock from Paper Trey Ink for my card base (5 1/2 X 4 1/4) and as my anchor color.  I used the Lavender Chateau matstack from DCWV for all the other papers.  The octagons were made using Spellbinders dies. The sizes for all the papers are given on the video.
Now for the video tutorial:
Be sure to head over to Getting Cricky to see all the other projects featured.  You can even download your own project.  Click here to head over to Getting Cricky.  Thanks for watching and have a great day!
