Music Is Life Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, 
Today I am participating in the Music is Life Blog Hop. Music undoubtedly plays a HUGE roll in our lives. For me, it has been a constant vehicle in which I use to praise and worship the Lord as well as find encouragement and strength.

Here is a look at the finished layout. I used an assortment of papers from the DCWV Linen Closet paper pad and also The Christmas Vintage stack from paper pad.

Here is a special quote that has always touched my heart. I used the Delightful Ditty stamp set from Close To My Heart I used my Saddle Ink Pad to ink the edges. I also used my Saddle Ink pad and stamped the violin and then cut it out.

I created the flowers and curled the petals to give them a little more dimension. I added some bling I had in my stash to the centers.

Here is a closer look at the butterflies. You can also see where I added some pearls as accents around the scalloped pennant.

This is a closer look at the embellishments and the gold foil tape.

Here is a closer look at the hearts. I stamped the centers with some of the notes that were in the same stamp set above.

Here’s a look at the redeemed paper mat. This piece of paper is one I created. I printed it out and then sponged some more Saddle Ink pad for the edges. I also stamped the saxophone from the same Delightful Ditty stamp set. I am sharing the file for this hop.
