'The Heavenly and the Earthly Meet' at Scrap that Poetry

Below is the poem we had to use for inspiration at 'Scrap that Poetry' for April

An Easter Flower Gift- challenge #12

John Greenleaf Whittier Poem

O dearest bloom the seasons know,
Flowers of the Resurrection blow,
Our hope and faith restore;
And through the bitterness of death
And loss and sorrow, breathe a breath
Of life forevermore!
The thought of Love Immortal blends
With fond remembrances of friends;
In you, O sacred flowers,
By human love made doubly sweet,
The heavenly and the earthly meet,
The heart of Christ and ours

Here is my interpretation of the poem

I can't take full credit for this as I scraplifted some elements of this page from Tia ???, I will pop all info (and give tia full credit) up on my blog once we are able to post. Layout is called 'The Heavenly and the Earthly meet', once I stuck down the multitude of flowers I sewed thin satin stips across them and left them frayed and cottons hanging, I printed out the poem cut into pieces and stuck across the satin strips. I then scattered a few odd embellishments on the page.
I wanted to try something different, something not normally my style.................
I'm pleased with how it turned out! What do you ladies think?
