And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Make a Joyful Noise

Hello friends!  I have another quick challenge card for you today.  The musical theme of the card came from the Splitcoaststampers' Ways to Use It Challenge for today.
Creative Nugget:  I took this card apart several times before ending up with this…ever do that?  The Faithful Fish Pattern Die was used to emboss the top of the background layer.  The bottom is KaiserCraft designer paper.  A Punched scallop border separates the two sections.   Amazing Grace was stamped in Watering Can Archival Ink and cut with a Rectangle Nestie for the second layer.  Finally the treble clef from the beautiful Just a Note stamp set by Our Daily Bread Designs was stamped, colored with Copic Markers, and cut with a Matting Basics Die from Spellbinders.  All of the layers were matted and stitched to Smokey Shadow or Blushing Bride.  Jute was colored with a Copic Marker to match, a bow made, and pearls added to finish the card.

Here are the supplies from the Our Daily Bread Designs Store used on my card for today:

The MOJO Monday sketch was used for the design of my card.

The shabby, vintage colors came from The Card Concept.

As always…I appreciate your visit!  Thanks so much for stopping by…have a wonderful day!

Wow! Your card is fabulous...and your stitching is absolutely perfect - not an easy task getting a zig-zag stitch to play nicely going around corners! I'm in awe of your attention to detail - the perfectly matched jute bow, your lovely coloring, the wee peak of a scalloped border...fabulous creation! I'm so glad that you shared your talent with us at the Card Concept Challenge :)
