With a Song

Good morning everyone....hope all is well on this wonderful Friday morning!!! I am leaving later today to go to the North Texas Shoebox Swap so I am up early packing and finishing up my card packets. I also have to water plants, go see my parents, go to the store......yikes!!! Where is my Fairy Godmother when I need her!! Anyway....I wanted to show you the card I made for the Ways to Use it Challenge on Splitcoast yesterday.

The challenge was to use something musical on our card. I used musical paper behind the birdcage, punched musical notes, and a sentiment that talks about a song. Rubbernecker's new Wild Garden Silhouette #539-04 was stamped on the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden dp as was the sentiment from RN's Fall Trilogy#480 set. Musical paper from 7 Gypsies Journey collection lines the KaiserCraft wood birdcage and I punched out some musical notes to float around like little butterflies. The seam binding, button, and twine finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker's Wild Garden Silhouette, Fall Trilogy
Paper: Soft Sky, Prism Tawny Dark, Pink Paislee dp, 7 Gypsies dp
Ink: Ranger Vintage Photo, Baja Breeze color wash on the wood bird
Accessories: KaiserCraft Wood Bird and Birdcage, Seam Binding, Button, Twine, Musical Note Punch


Thanks for stopping by...I hope you have a great weekend!!!
