No Greater Love


Happy Friday !

I am so happy you stopped by The Open Window today!
 
The Craft's Meow is having a wonderful blog hop featuring a
a beautiful stamp set for Easter.


If you've come by way of my talented friend
then you are on the right trail to complete the hop.

If not, I would love for you to start at the beginning over at
because YOU could win our fabulous giveaway!

Our beautiful set was designed by  
Nina Brackett of NinaB Designs



The set is called 'No Greater Love' and is absolutely stunning!
The details on the beautiful cross are amazing.

I stamped the cross in Slate ink by A Muse Studio 
on paper from Little Yellow Bicycle.
I love how the vintage ornate look of the paper really enhances
the image. I mounted it behind an oval die cut card.
The sentiment was stamped & edged in 
Aged Mahogany & Old Paper Distress Ink from Ranger.

There were so many ways I thought of embellishing the crown,
but decided to keep it simple with clear rhinestones.
