Easter Morning And The Road Not Taken
I finally got to do one of Cornish Heritage Farms blog challenges. This we were to make a project or card for Spring/Easter. Right away I thought of Thomas Kincades release of Sunrise. This stamp just reminds me of Easter Morning; the day my Savior, Jesus rose from the dead leaving behind an empty cross on a hill, and an empty grave; taking my sins away and making me new again.
I'm really pleased with the how this card turned out since I stamped and colored it while on migraine medication...not an easy task let me tell you. However, I needed to relax somehow, and stamping is my form of relaxation.
I stamped the image in memento tuxedo black and colored with prismacolor markers before sponging Stampin Up! pumpkin pie ink around the edges of the card. I stamped from Mona Lisa Moments Motivational Centers the following phrase on the inside:
"Two roads diverged in a wood and I -
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.
This phrase is from one of my favorite poems by Robert Frost called The Road Not Taken and to me it goes perfect with the Sunrise image. We are presented daily with two roads, or paths, to take and what is/are the outcomes of that choice.
What road did you take today?
