Card Patterns Sketch Challenge 159

I really like how this card turned out!  It was a lot of trouble, however.  I couldn't find a reverse dot stamp or a reverse dot purple paper in my collection.  So what do you see in the picture?  Fabric!  I scanned some purple dot fabric I had, printed it out on paper, and used it on my card!  What do you know!  The "regular" dot paper on the right side is an Outlines border stamp in Clearsnap Violet, heat embossed with clear powder.  Here is the original sketch, so you can see why I chose the dots:

I know the dots just mean a patterned paper, but I didn't really have any two that worked well together for this card idea.  So I stayed with the dots!  
The cross stamp is from Stampabilities, one of my new favorite Easter stamps.  I colored the cross with Smooch paint in shades of Plum, Cape Cod, and Siren, similar to a post I did earlier with this stamp.  
I think the royal purple is perfect for Easter, so even though this is Good Friday, He will rise on Sunday as King, so I decorated my cross with bright purple flowers, like some churches decorate the cross for Easter morning.
