Make Music in Your Heart


Good Monday morning to you! I hope you had a pleasant and relaxing week-end. I got to do a card for Our Daily Bread Design's first DT challenge. I learned about it on America's blog here and the challenge can be found here. The challenge is to use a heart/hearts in your design and you have until Thursday, February 11 (my birthday) to submit your design. They do not require that you use one of their stamps, but if you have one to use they welcome it. I did have one I could use and came up with my card that I was very pleased with. The sentiment and flower on the heart are from their Sing to the Lord set. The DP is one I had on hand by October Afternoon. The border is a MS punch and the flower is done from my new Nellie Snellen punch and emboss flower set that I pre-ordered from 7 Kids College Fund. I sponged the bottom and top flowers with Tim Holtz' Antique Linen. I also sponged the sentiment and flower and heart with the same. The ribbon behind the sentiment is from SU! My daughter loved the colors and the sentiment, especially since she is a musician. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Monday.

What a stunning card! Love the cream, black and red. The music score in the background is perfect with the sentiment!
I will be traveling on the 11th to Tennessee to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday on the 14th, so I am sending you Birthday wishes and hugs a little early!!
