REJOICE Easter Card

Rejoice!  Is there any better word to describe our feelings at Easter?  As today's designer over at CARD A DAY BLOG, I created this card for our Easter theme.  The "REJOICE" die cut is from my EASTER HEADINGS SVG set.  I cut it from cardstock.  The card base is white cardstock covered with a yellowish designer paper.  Over that I layered light green cardstock that I ran through the Big Shot in an embossing folder.  I swiped on Scattered Straw Distress Ink with a blending tool.  Using punches, I rounded the top corners and created the lacy bottom  A green ribbon was added.  I wanted to add a gold cross charm but didn't have one.  What to do? hmmmmmm...
My bead case was sitting out so I figured I'd make a charm using wire and beads.  I think it turned out just fine!  Nothing like solving a creative problem using products on hand.  (I used Glossy Accents to attach it to the card so that the charm would stay flat.)
