Worship the Lord

Hello again and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.

Well, we have had sunshine for the past 2 days and another sunny day tomorrow. But, it's still pretty cold. Although it's bearable when the sun is out.

After our staff meeting at church this morning,  I went for a haircut. I always have such great conversations with my stylist, Toni.  And, she does a great job on my hair.

I did some practicing this afternoon with my prismacolor pencils  I want to get better with this medium and it takes practice. I may take a class later this month at one of our local stores.  I didnt use any pencils on this card though.

My card for today is one that I made for the challenge on "our daily bread designs". They had such a great layout to work with this week.

The colors on my card are from the Tuesday color challenge on splitcoaststampers.
Julia Aston, was our hostess, and she chose the beautiful colors of rose red, marina mist and certainly celery.

I decided to play up the marina mist (blue) and use the rose red and celery in a minor way.

I made my own background with a music score stamp. I stamped this several times in marina mist.

My sentiment is from the ODBD set "worship the Lord".  I cut it out with the labels 4 nestability die.

The Stampin-Up 2 step bird punch and a flower punch were used to complete my card.

Other challenges:

1.  Baby Bud designs blog has a ribbon & bows challenge.
2.  Top Tip Tuesday blog wants us to use ourfavorite embellishment or technique. I love ribbon and the nesties dies.
3.  The Stampin B's  challenge #100  wants us to use something music related on our card
