Sketch Challenge – Our Daily Bread Designs

Welcome to my first post for Our Daily Bread Designs’ Shining the Light challenge! Starting today I’ll be joining the very talented and inspiring challenge team at ODBD every week. Words fail to express how grateful and excited I am. This challenge was one of the very first I joined when I opened my blog, and this team has been incredibly supportive and kind always. So it is a great priviledge to be part of this beautiful group of ladies! Thank you Kelley for your kind invitation and thank you teammates for your warm welcome and support.

This week’s challenge is a sketch and below is the card I made inspired on it.

Music Speaks stamp set
Beautiful Borders Dies
Doily Dies
Flourished Star Pattern Die

This month’s new release at ODBD is filled with beautiful stamps about worship. I used the new stamp set called Music Speaks. I felt quite inspired, since a great part of my life was devoted to serving in worship teams. While I was making my card a beautiful song came to my mind spontaneously, a song I had not heard in years. I am sharing it with you, so you can enjoy it too!
