sing and make music...

Good morning all. I spent this morning in my office playing for the first time all week! My hubby has been home from work injured, not seriously, just some broken ribs since before Christmas and though I love having him around he is seriously cramping my style.

This card uses the Our Daily Bread Designs set Sing to the Lord. I chose this set because this weeks SplitCoastStampers Ways to Use it challenge is to use birds. While cruising the challenges for some inspiration I discovered the Taylored Expressions sketch challenge, which I think works nicely with this image and I combined that with the Color Throwdown challenge which is to use Garden Green, Rich Razzleberry and Mellow Moss. This color combination finally gave me the courage to cut into this gorgeous velvet paper from Sei that Kelley the owner of Our Daily Bread Design sent me.
What I used:
GP white, SU garden green, rich razzleberry, mellow moss card stock
memento black ink pad
mellow moss stamp pad
prismacolor pencils, OMS and blending stump
circle nestie
mellow moss taffeta ribbon
heart charm
sponge

This is so beautiful Debi! I love this set!!! One of my all time favorites for sure! Love the papers and colors... great sketch! Hope hubby feels better soon! Mine was home this morning for a Dr appnt. I know what you mean... it's hard to stamp when they are home!

This card is very beautiful and I love the way the flowers pop. The heart hanging from the ribbon is a great element and it looks like the bird is looking over to read the sentiment. Very, very pretty!
