Sweet Harmony - SSSC161 + Casting Call

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Hooray the weekend is upon us and wouldn't you know it, it's going to rain on Saturday, so glad I have plans indoors!  But after the rain clears (and waters my plants and lawn/weeds) it's going to be sunny skies for the next few days, which means that we are going to have a warm 4th of July! Yay!!  I've been watching the weather channel and seeing all the record breaking triple digit temperatures throughout the country.  Makes me glad I live here in the fog soaked northern-est part of California.  Praying that you all are being wise and staying hydrated.

Here is a second card I made for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  I really like this sketch and I love this sweet Pure Innocence stamp set (My Favorite Things).  At our church, I'm (besides the pastor's wife) the worship leader (keyboard and vocals) or as I prefer to be known as, the  "lead worshiper" for our fellowship. It's one of those technicalities where you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him/her drink.  But I can lead by example! Anywhoo.... didn't mean to get off topic... my daughter (for a short time) took violin lessons so this brought back a few memories!

I've paper pieced the dress and all the designer paper is from Authentique.  The flower, button and ribbon are from various Key Ingredientient Kits (Taylored Expressions.  The Fishtail Flags are a STAX Die-Namics from MFT.  I've stamped the image (and sentiment) with Memento, Tuxedo Black ink and the image was diecut from Spellbinders Nestabilities Wonky Reverse Rectangles.  I've used Antique Linen Distress ink to blend around the image. Our sweet image has been colored by Copic markers and the card stock used is the Neenah bright white and Bazzill c/s for the base.

After coloring her shoes with a Copic black marker, I used a Spica pen to accent the shoes, straps, her barrette and the violin bow.

I've used the Notched Border Die-Namics to cut out the music paper (Authentique) to keep with the theme.  Isn't that a sweet sentiment?

Thanks so much for visiting and leaving a delightful comment!! It means a lot!

The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure.  It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others.  It is full of mercy and good deeds.  It shows not partiality and is always sincere.  James 3:17
