You're A Blessing

Happy Saturday, peeps!  Tomorrow at church we'll honor our pianist/organist who has made our worship so much more meaningful during the last FORTY years!  Can you believe that?  Forty years!  She has a master's degree in music and plays at nursing homes and for many choruses besides at our little church! She is also a teacher and Dana was her student as well!  So here's the card I made to thank her for all her music over the years:

Although it's technically not a Christmas card, I did use some beautiful Christmas papers from Kaiserkraft, adding a Balmy Blue glimmer paper scallop and a sentiment from Little Delights; the card base is Sahara Sand, and it's larger than a standard A4 card because I wanted to get all of that image at the top:

Since it was a larger card, I created my own envelope with an envelope punch board, and added a scallop of the same paper along the edge:

And I used a large sentiment from Pinkfresh's Scripted Bold Sentiments on the inside:

I am also entering this at the Color Dare 476, where they want to see pastel shades!  I did use a blue shade for my sentiments, so I hope they won't disqualify me!!

Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

"It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High, proclaiming your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night, to the music of the ten-stringed lyre and the melody of the harp."  Psalm 91:1-3
