DS4J callenge #63: Celebrate Easter

Our new challenge at Digistamps4Joy is to Celebrate EasterThis is open to your interpretation on how you celebrate Easter time, whether it is collecting eggs in the garden, chasing the bunnies, or a Christian connection.
Here's my card using "Floral Cross" from DS4J and a sentiment from "The Vine" (GinaK designs):

On a personal note:
For Christians across the world the season of Easter is one of the critical foundations of our faith. It's not just about Christ's sacrifice on the cross but even more importantly, about His resurrection and victory over death and sin.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life". 1 John 3:16

It's also not enough to just believe but to also bear the fruit of Christianity and make Christ the Lord of your life. Yes, we make mistakes but we must repent and live by Grace.
