Rejoice / Easter Banner

Last month I shared a valentine banner you could hang across a mantel.  But you can also create table top banners.  This one was created using a chipboard bi-fold album I had in my stash from years ago.  I'm not sure if anyone still makes these, but you could make your own. 

A lot of the supplies I used are old, so I'm not going to include a detailed list this time.  But I will tell you that the beautiful cross is made by Rubber Stampede and it's called Elegant Cross.  I'm pretty sure I bought it at Hobby Lobby last year, so it may still be available.  The butterfly is Layer's of Color. "Rejoice in the miracle of Easter" is a digital image from DeeDee's digi's.

The backgrounds are all patterned paper in pastel colors and then I distressed here an there using the same cream acrylic paint I used on the chipboard letters.

"For God so loved the world ..." is also a digital image.  Most of the time, when I purchase digital images, I make the name of the shop I bought it from part of the file name.  Unfortunately I didn't with this one : ( . 

Hope you are inspired to create your own Easter banner!  I'd love to see it.

And I want to share that I am thrilled to be the guest designer for Sweet N Sassy this month!  Their April new release blog hop is this Thursday and I hope you will join us!  There will also be a party over at SCS on this thread HERE.  You will be able to participate in challenges and possibly win some stamps!!  There are some real cutie patootie's being released this month and I can't wait to share what I have designed with 2 of the new release sets!
