ODBDSLC221 Sketch

Happy New Year everyone!
Here is my first card for Our Daily Bread Design in 2015
It is a sketch card.

ODBD stamps used: Just a Note
ODBD dies used: Doily, Faithful Fish Pattern, Circle Ornaments
I stamped my image and colored then cut it out with a circle die, using the "out of the box" technique so as not to cut off part of the image. I also formed the back side of the music symbol with a stylist to give it more dimension.  I emboss/die cut the Faithful Fish background from white and also blue so that I could alternate to follow the sketch.  They each have yellow borders as well.  I then cut the Doily die cut using the same yellow and the outer Doily using white.  I glued the circles together then cut off one side as shown in the sketch.  My ribbon is some yellow tulle. Finally, I've added some pearls to the Doily and 3 to one side of the horizontal strip.

Ah music, the Lord God loves music.  Besides telling us all through Psalms to make a joyful noise unto the Lord, He tell us through His entire word. But did you also know that God had the musicians go with His armies, playing as they marched? Yes, they would lead armies into battle playing instruments to God.
There is something very special about music.  Music speaks to the spirit, music communicates great emotion, music says I love you to God when you sing praises to Him.  Music makes us happy too.  "It is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful". Ps.147:1
"Speaking to each other in Psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord".  Eph. 5:19
