PP387 Sing to Him

Happy Easter, everyone!  Or, as our church family likes to say, Happy Resurrection Day!  I hope that you have a wonderful time with your family and friends today!  Laurie is our Paper Players hostess with a wonderful theme...I don't think we've ever had this theme, so I'm even more excited about it!  Here we go:

I remembered I had gotten this pretty little Inky Antics bird stamp a couple years ago and thought it would make a nice card to give to our church's praise team as a way to thank them for the lovely music they provide each week.  I love this verse! Since the stamp is photopolymer, I actually cut the bird apart from the rest of the stamp; that made it easy to ink the branch in Smoky Slate and the bird in Memento Black.  I stamped the verse over a portion of the branch so it would fit into the circle diecut a little better.  The musical panel is from a retired Cornish Heritage Farm stamp, also stamped in Memento Black:

I added a partial scallop in Lost Lagoon as well as a little stitched scallop along the music piece.  My final embellishment was some Silver Glimmer leaves cut from the Everyday Jars Framelits:

For my layout, I used the CAS(E) This Sketch for this week:

I hope you'll play with our musical challenge this week!  We can't wait to see your creation in our gallery!  For more inspiration, check out what the DT created:

As I promised, here are the tie-dyed eggs we did!  Basically, you wrap a hard-boiled egg in a layer of paper towel, drip food coloring on it, spray with water and let it dry.  

I have oodles of bottles of retired SU reinkers, so we used those, but I had too many layers of paper toweling, so the designs were rather faint.  

They were cute, though!  Maybe I should say "psychedelic"!!!  She had fun doing them and that's all that mattered!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I do love that music stamp down the side and the way that you've used bird, branch and verse. The Easter Eggs look great!

LeAnne, I love how we both used the same theme challenge and sketch, with entirely different results! Your card is so lovely and elegant. I especially like the speckled look of your bird, and how you echoed that with the musical border. A belated Happy Easter to you, my friend!

I absolutely LOVE this card LeAnne! What a beautiful sentiment and the subtle music border and birdy are the perfect accompaniment. Also love the subtle detail and colour of the border piece - I miss Lost Lagoon!

Your card is absolutely stunning! You have such an amazing gift for color and composition! The egg coloring looked fun. We didn't do any this year and I missed the mess! Hope you're having a great week ~ Hugs, Annie
