Easter Lily Sprite_Aurora Wings

The Easter Lily Sprite

The beautiful Easter Lily has long stood as a symbol of purity, elegance, beauty, hope, innocence and spirituality, and peace.  It is sometimes called the Trumpet Lily, or the  Bermuda Lily.  It is a Biblical flower commonly associated with the resurrection of Christ.
This card was made for the pastels challenge #47 at  Aurora  Wings Challenge Blog

The legend, told  below, comes from 

"This importance rests even more clearly on a legend that the blood of Jesus, as it fell from the cross, was by a miracle transformed into flowers which filled heaven and earth.The popular Easter lily we use today to celebrate the holiday is referred to as ‘the white-robed apostles of hope.’ These beautiful trumpet shaped white flowers were brought to the United States in 1875 from Japan by an American tourist and named after the florist who made it popular. The flower retells the resurrection story with its life cycle. These snow white flowers symbolize new life and hope. 

The bulb of these flowers buried in the ground represents the tomb of Jesus and the glorious white trumpet-like fragrant flowers which grow from the bulbs symbolize His life after death. The snowy white color stands for the purity of the Divine Savior and the joy of the resurrection while the trumpet shape signifies Gabriel's trumpet call to rebirth and new life."

  3. You've created a gorgeous card, Priss! The Easter Lily Sprite probably is one of the most difficult to color, despite its relative simplicity, because it calls for realistic capturing of 'white', which we all know can be so tricky! I LOVE your coloring, the simple elegance with just enough detail. You've captured the purity what this flower represents so well. Thank you for joining our Easter Pastels challenge at AW! Mitzi xx
