This week, the Global Design Project challenge has a sketch challenge. The idea is to create a card design that features a certain layout in a card project. To view the projects for this challenge, please visit the Global Design Project page by clicking here.
I have a good friend that lost her son this week. There are no words I can offer to make her and her family feel relief, although I wish I could try. One way I can help is to make a card for her and pray they are able to make it through one more day. My friend loves music and sings beautifully in the choir at our church, so I feel that sending a visual representation of love, faith, family and music may bring a comforting moment during the difficult days that lie ahead. With music and faith being the inspiration for this project, I looked around in my patterned paper stash for something with music. This Christmas DSP paper pack has a nice image of sheet music that pairs a black and vanilla color combo. Building on this combo, I added Gold Glimmer Paper highlights and soft tones of Sahara Sand.
Adding Best Birds Bundle (it’s 10% off regular price until May 31st!) was the tie that bound the colors and theme together. There are framelits for the Best Birds stamp set and more dies for Birds & Blooms Thinlits Dies. I like the combination of the large and small birds with the tiny glitter pieces. I used a scrap of Gold Glimmer Paper on a bird’s belly die to lend the loose image of hearts. The envelope is vanilla as well, stamped to match the front and inside of the card.

Basic Black card stock for card base: 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
