Easter Lily Card with variation

Thanks to all who offered their condolences on my last blog on the passing of my father. We are still adjusting and trying to keep mom busy. I was able to do one card. Unfortunately I did not make the deadline for the some of the contests I was going to enter. I did two variations by changing the background paper. The lily is a digi image from Ann Fort of Peacock Feathers. She has a store on Etsy, but I got this image courtesy of her group on CDAC. She wanted to see what kind of Easter creation we could come up with. Here is my card with two different backgrounds:

The crosses came from the cricut cartridge New Testament. This is a great cartridge, but it seems to work better for bigger images. The verse on my card also came from there, but I had to type it on Word and print it because it would not cut well enough on the size that I needed. I tried both 1 3/4 " and 2" and the blade would not cut through and ended up ripping the cardstock. The yellow cardstock is from a 6X6 glitter pack. The ribbon is just some ribbon I bought a long time ago from the local craft store. I have no idea where the gems came from-probably Walmart. I colored the lily using copics. The sketch idea is last weeks challenge from Cardz TV. I didn't make the deadline for that one. I chose the green background because of last week's Die Cutting Diva challenge-missed that one by 2 days:( Oh well. I am entering the following challenges:
