Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge #8

I have a special card this week for our sketch challenge. A special lady at my church passed away this week and I wanted a card for her husband and son that was personal to them. She had an incredible talent for piano and singing. She was in charge of our church's music for many years. I hope this will comfort them in some small way.
Be sure to stop by the OCC Blog and see the wonderful samples created by the team. I hope you can play along with us this week!

Supplies I used on this card:
Sketch- OCCSC8
Stamps- Magnolia tree
Copics- g20, g21, yg91, e30, e34, e53
Misc.-Cuttlebug embossing folder, green chalks, white satin ribbon
Quotation- "Music cleanses the understanding; inspires it, and lifts it into a realm which it would not reach if it were left to itself." -Henry Ward Beecher

Challenges this card qualifies for:
Etsy Inspired- Tree necklace by Cathy
365 Cards Day 19- Cotton
If the Shoe Fits- #27 Trees
