Sing to the Lord



  I know, I know that's a lot of blue!  I decided to go monochromatic for the ODBD Shining the Light Challenge this week.  We are to use blue as our main color.  I think I got that covered.  *wink*  I also wanted to play along with the Wee Memories sketch challenge this week.

 
  Ever since I bought the background sheet music stamp from Papertrey I planned to make a card combining it with some sentiments from my Sing to the Lord set.  I love that set of stamps.

  I also used the Victorian Lace Die for the first time.  I cannot believe I hadn't broken that out yet.  Shame, shame.  I used both the die cut and the negative and layered them together.  I love how it turned out.  The little decorative design stamp is from the Mat Stack 1 stamp collection.

  Hope you all have a safe and warm week.  We are snowed iced in for the next day or two.  Can I move back to Hawaii yet?

STUNNING card Sara! I totally LOVE what you did with the Victorian border die!!!

Sara,your use of the border die is pure genius. I LOVE what you did and will be using your idea soon. It's so eye-catching! Right away this card made me think of the sea. I love the monochromatic blues, and that music does match so well with the sentiment.
