Food For The Soul

Welcome to a new month long challenge. The challenge is to use newsprint or  sheet music somewhere on your card. 

The DT was asked to also use a food related stamp. 
I used food for the soul. Bread and Chalice Cling Set

 For the inside of my card I used :May The Peace of the Lord

I made this card last week and forgot to post it. 
Can you see a bit of a heart shape with the ovals?
I used Heart Bouquet and Love You Small from Serendipity Stamps. I cut a small slit on either side of the bouquet pulled the ribbon through and tied the bow.

Thank you for all your very kind comments on the blog hop. 
I love this stamp set and it will be used many times in my family. 
First I stamped the entire image on white , then on a piece of gold vellum . I embossed the vellum, added some foam tape and placed it over the stamped image. I also used Stitched Mats                  Trying to keep this one simple and elegant for the occasion of a First Holy Communion.
