Sing Praises

It's Thursday!  Time again for an Inspired Stamps inspiration.  This week, it's DT Choice and I decided to use a sentiment as the main focal image.  This scripture sentiment is from the set "Sing For Joy" - love this set because it's all about music and I can't imagine life without music and singing.


The sentiment piece was cut and embossed using Spellbinders Classic Oval, and while the die is still on the cut-out, I sponged the centre with some light purple & yellow inks.  The sentiment is then adhered on top of another two layers of die cut pieces.


The background is a piece of white cardstock embossed using a Sizzix embossing folder.  Towards the bottom part of the card, I tied a strand of seam binding (dyed with Distress Stain Milled Lavender) around the card into a bow.  Then I adhered some pearls, a mini rosette and a couple of pins and the card is done.
