Welcome to another wonderful Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge!

Our Beautiful Hostess:
PeggySue of Roses By My Window

The Scripture of Inspiration:
Matthew 27:51 "The veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom."

The Challenge:
Use torn paper technique
(just tear paper with your fingers and use it somehow on your card, but it must be torn, not cut)

Our Sponsor:
They are offering a $15 credit to their store to one random winner from our challenge!

My Card:
I've used several images from our sponsor's store. The girl is Sarah Praying (but I changed her mouth so that it looks like she is singing! My sentiment is from their Sing for Joy set, as well as the musical notes in the background and on the black torn cardstock (I used versamark ink, it's really hard to see them, though)
Be sure to check out our sponsor's site and all their adorable stamps!

I got my sketch from Sketches by Carly and will be entering this card in her challenge just as soon as I get home on Monday!

Have a blessed day!

Hi Helen! What a sweet image! And I like how you changed her to be singing! With the "music" background and the Bible verse...Wow! The perfect combo!
Praying for special blessings of peace for you this week!

Cute card! Great idea to change her mouth, and you made it look great. I love that you tilted the vertical torn panel.
