Alpha Challenge #07 - Remembrance

The letter of the fortnight over at the Craft Barn for their Alpha  Challenge is "R".

I had to search through the year's special days to find an appropriate one and finally in November, there was Remembrance Sunday. It is kind of relevant to today being Easter Sunday as we remember that Christ rose from the dead, thereby conquering death and enabling us to have eternal life in Him.

My page is a remake of the salt technique and stencilling I did in a journal challenge as I just like this combination so much. Works really well for sympathy cards too.
