SSIC #102

This week's challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ (#102) is to add some aspect of music into your project. The scripture is: Colossians 3:16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
This spoke directly to my heart, and put a smile on my face! The happiest moments of my week are Sunday morning at the beginning of services, when I am singing and praising God. No matter what's going on in my life, what I'm worried about, I am lifted out of my earthly problems and just feel joy. In fact, I am that annoying woman in the pew ahead of you who is literally dancing, LOL! I've tried to stay still, but despite occasional good-natured teasing by friends, I just can't do it. I'm not out in the aisles or anything, but I just can't hold still. :-D So, here is my card for this challenge (bonus points if you can find the musical aspect without clicking on the picture to enlarge it):


And the inside:


Were you able to see that the sky behind the lamb is musical notes stamped in pink (you know, as in a lullaby)? Sorry it doesn't show up better here, but it's pretty cute IRL! :-D I had so much fun making this. It's for the daughter of one of my mom's friends, her third child, her third girl! Pink and green are the shower colors, and there was a little lamb on the invite, so . . . I tried to go with the flow . . . What do you think?
