SSIC Passion for Music

I love Sunday - so many things happen on Sundays and one of them is the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge - it is such a pleasure to see so many of you playing along with the challenges!

This weeks challenge is brought to us my the 'oh so sweet' Miesje. 

"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. "
Galatians 5:1

Who has challenged us to create a Red, White, and Blue thank you card - my card has a thank you sentiment on the inside.

I could not resist this gorgeous image from our sponsor for this week - Gingerloft!

I embossed some miscellaneous DP I had sitting on my desk, with the Victoria Embossing Folder, added some pleated paper and  navy braid...

Bringing it all together with some Seam Binding, a double looped bow, flower and a vintage button.
