I'm way behind in challenges since I'm trying to finish off our home school school year, so I'm combining a couple here. I saw this pretty card on Pinterest and thought the frame would work great in this week's sketch. I used a music note and bird as well. I made my frame out of cardboard covered in the Washi tape. I used sticky strip on the back side to seal down my Washi edges (I cut my frame 3/8" and wish I'd made it just a tad smaller to give me more Washi overlap). I added the pleated ribbon inside my frame as well. I crumpled and distressed and sponged my back and horizontal dp panels. I added another piece of the pleated ribbon and a knot of stitched ribbon. I used some tiny punched banner pieces on a linen thread for my sentiment. I wheeled some faint Sahara music notes on these and sponged them as well. Hand wrote my sentiment. I popped my frame and a couple of the banner pieces and used glue dots to hole the thread in place.
This one is going to my cousin's wife who went in for a routine back surgery and came out a paraplegic. I was thinking about her and praying for her this morning and the thought that she would have to learn a whole new way of life translated into "Sing a New Song" in my mind. I'll add some more from Psalm 33 when I write inside. Step by step photos of the frame on my blog.

Oh, Gail, what a beautiful card, especially with your lovely frame using the washi tape. I just love this little bird and the wonderful pennant with the sentiment! What a difficult situation indeed for your cousin's wife, and I am praying that God will draw near to her and give her strength as she truly learn to sing a new song - and be reminded of His steadfast love! What a precious Psalm. And bless you for being an encouragement to her! Hugs!
