SSIC - Sing With Grace in Your Heart

Good morning!  We have a new challenge up at Stampin’ Sisters in Christ Challenges
I still have quite a few more Christmas cards to make, so that’s what I set out to do.  Before I get into the details, let me tell you about the challenge!  Our hostess is our lovely Guest Designer, Teresa Kline!  She chose this verse to share:  “Colossians 3:16 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.”  And her challenge for us is to use MUSIC in some form on your card.  Please pop over to the SSIC blog to read Teresa’s devotional for this week and enter to win a nice stamp set by Simon Says Stamp! 

I grabbed this beautiful set by Layers of Color called Reindeer Waltz to begin with and this sheet paper dp and floral paper is from the Madeline Prima pad by McMahon Five Designs.  It was all coming together lovely and then had a space to fill.  Perfect spot for this blue music symbol (the name escapes me at the minute) it is from the Joyful Noise set, also by Layers of Color.  And lastly… I printed a Christmas sentiment from the Blessed Christmas digi set by Doodle Pantry and layered onto a Fancy Tag Spellbinders by M5D.  Hope you like! 

Pop on over to the challenge blog to see what my design sisters created to inspire you!!
