Easter Lilies

     This is the last of the five newly released sets from MHK Designs this month and one of the most beautiful, I think.  The set is called "He is Risen" and you can see a photo of it at the end of this post.

     This is a single layer card with the image and the sentiment printed right onto the card front.   I used chalk markers and colored pencils to color the image and chalk markers to ink the edges of the card.  The corners are shaped with a punch.  I added lace ribbon from my stash and the three pearls.  That's all -- very simple card design.

This is such a beautiful card, I love it. It may be me being a bit dense but I am not sure how it links to the theme of Desire at the Path of Positivity, perhaps you might be able to add a comment to explain it for me. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful creation. Pippa PoP DT
