He is Risen

Today's card was a fun one to make and simplified my lily making process a bit.  Last summer I made a Stargazer lily for my sister's b-day card (here).  I loved how it turned out other than it didn't have as much of the cone shape as I would have liked.  Well, last week I happened to see a tutorial for making lilies and I HAD to give them a try again!   What better time to make them than around Easter.  I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with seeing pictures or cards with the lilies placed somewhere on or around a cross and I decided to give it a try myself...and there happened to be a couple of challenges out there just for Easter. The Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #111 Easter and the 4 Cafty Chicks challenge #83 Easter and Crazy Egg.
For those of you interested in giving the lilies a try check out this tutorial here from Valita.  She has a LOT of great (and free) video tutorials out there for you to watch...thanks, Valita!
Just a note...I made my lilies VERY small and had to adjust everything accordingly so they would fit on my card.  I have the size of the oval punch I used listed with the supplies below...

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
