Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #159

Hello Friends! Welcome to the next challenge at SSiC: MUSIC!
This week our hostess is Marilynn and she decided she wants to see some element of music in your project.
Our sponsor is Fred She Said, who is offering a $15 gift card to one randomly chosen winner.
You can visit their store to see some wonderful digital stamps!
The Bible passage that Marilyn chose and that inspired her to create this challenge is:

"Speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." 
Ephesians 5:19-20

Music...what a wonderful way to praise God! And we are commanded to "sing and make music", along with giving thanks for everything! As we look forward to Thanksgiving this is a great verse that reminds us of one way to show our thankfulness is to use music in praising and worshipping our God.

For my "music element" I just used some design paper that is a copy of antique sheet music.
The large butterfly is a die cut from a whole set by K&Co. that I just bought! I sponged it with 5 colors of ink and added a bunch of Stickles. The Bible verse is a Verve stamp and I used Spellbinders -Labels 15 to cut it out. The cardstock and rhinestones are from my stash.

Please consider joining our challenge this week...we'd love to see what you create with some sort of music element in it! For more inspiration and to read a lovely devotional from Marilynn just go to the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge blog!


PS...
Well, I'm having kind of a "Duh" moment here! Reread my post and found a problem. I liked the Bible verse to go with the butterfly, thinking they were both sort of serene. However, the theme is MUSIC and those Bible verses speak of making music and singing to the Lord...NOT to be quiet! I know there is a time for each but I'm thinking I really chose the wrong one this time! Oops!

My eyes are popping at that butterfly, sponging is one of my weak areas, I so admire someone who can do it well and you did it marvelously well! This looks great! Love that background too!
