SSIC LOC Sweet Song

Sunday comes around so quickly and with it comes the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge - a perfect way to start the week!  This week we are blessed to have one of our Guest Designers sharing the devotional Teresa has chosen...

 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord
Colossians 3:16

Teresa has challenged us to use music in some form. Sheet music, music notes, instruments, or singing

I could not resist the Layers of Color Honeysweet art stamp set - how divine are these bees, along with The Love Chapter art stamp set.

I sponged the Layers of Color Vintage Medallion art stencil onto a page from an old hymnal using Tim Holtz Distressing Ink - Scattered Straw

Hand ruffled Seam Binding and a flower from the Flowering Gems art stamp set are the finishing touches.

You can see the details and dimension in this photo, along with the perfect sentiment from the Psalms - perfect for this challenge - the Psalms are known as the Song of David.
This card is for the following challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges - Monochromatic
Marks Finest Papers - Distressed Card
Clearly Inspired - things with wings
Charisma Cardz – Distressing
