Life is Stronger

It's Monday and time for another MojoMonday card. I've started on my Easter cards because in little over 40 days it will be Easter. This year I want to get my cards out early, in plenty of time to reach far-flung destinations. Here's my card:

The patterned papers are from First Editions New Leaf 8x8 pad.

The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroques easter Tradition set, stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.

For embellishment, a simple brown gingham ribbon and bow.

I kept the card simple because I wanted the sentiment to take centre stage.

The ornate cross is from the same Chocolate Baroque set. 

The sketch is from MojoMonday #280 and I'm also taking my card to the following challenges: Word Art Wednesday #66 "Anything Goes"; Pretty Little Ribbon #19 "Anything Goes"; Stamp and Create Feb Challemge "Spring" and One Stitch At A Time #150 "Anything Goes".

It's Caranaval / Mardi Gras / Shrove Tuesday tomorrow...the streets here will be teaming with merrymakers of every description. Hopefully the weather holds. We haven't decided if we should venture out and gawk at the madness, or stay at home and eat pancakes! What will you be doing tomorrow?

Thanks for stopping by, have a fun day and I'll see you soon.
