Precious Lord, Take My Hand

Today I'd like to share with you one of the cards I made for two weekend challenges.  One challenge was 'A Butterfly card with lace' and the other was 'Music for the background'.

Here's what I came up with when I combined the two.

To make this card, I printed the sheet of music that I scanned from one of our music books and sized it down to about 4" x 5".  The olive background paper has gold shaped diamonds which tie in to the embellishments.  Lace isn't something I use often on my cards, but I certainly didn't have any problem finding several pieces in my craft room!  The heart piece was actually a bit stiff which made it perfect for attaching to the music sheet.  I used the Cherry Lynn Tropical Flourish die with a coordinating olive dotted swiss paper for the next layer. The last layer is the gold Ornate Butterfly from Die'sire.  You'll notice the butterfly is only attached at the body, leaving the wings free to stand out. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
