C4C50 meets Shabby Chic

Happy weekend my sweet stampin' friends!!!

Hope you're have some fun plans??? I'm taking my middle daughter to Savannah for some shopping. Rebecca grew quite a bit this summer..and her feet grew from a shoe size 5 to a 7 1/2....crazy huh??? Anyway, Savannah here we come!!!

Are you ready to ink up your stamps this weekend??? How about playing along for this week Crazy4Challenges ~ C4C50 ??? Frances is feeling groovy and she is challenging us to add  some *MUSIC* to our creations!!!  It could be a music related stamp, designer paper, embossing folders, punches etc..... whatever you wish.

Here is my idea...........



The design for my card was inspired by the IC photo over at the Shabby Tea Room. I also combined it with the SSCC#51 ~ create an *apology* or *words of encouragement* card. The layout is again form the TESC123.


The beautiful encouraging Bible Verse is from the Sing to the Lord Set from ODBD. The Music BG is from an old Stampabilities Stamp called ~ Composer's Dream. The colors I used are Kraft, Vintage Vanilla and Chocolate Chip. The Design Paper is from the SU Bella Blue Collection. I added some *Faux Stitching* and *distressed* the edges. The card was dressed up with the beautiful MS Butterfly Punch, some Cotton Lace Ribbon, some Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Button, Brown Scrapper's Floss and the Halfback Pearls.

Please make sure to check out the C4C Team for all their musical creations ~ Angela, Barbara, Cindy, Frances, Jessie, JoanneLyndaMariaSilke K. and Vicki.

Have fun playing along and thank you for stopping by today!!! Hugs ~S~
