Put That to Music

 
I love the challenge this week that Sabrina Friel gave us over at CCEE Stampers. The challenge is to use a bird/birds and music. It doesn't have to be music paper or embellishments...song lyrics count, too.  I happen to love both. And, the plus is, I got another Christmas card made. Of course, you don't have to make yours a Christmas card...only if you want.
 
My music paper and the plaid is from a 6 x 6 pad of paper from The Paper Studio and it is Old World Winter. I'm using Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler for the bases and panels.
 
My sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps, A Heinrich Co. and it is from the set, Christmas in the Country.
 
I'm using a Stampin'Up! bird punch and a Memory Box woodland branch die. The music punch is EK PSN LE Symphony large edger punch.
 
The banner is hand cut and I sponged the bird's wings with Memento Rich Cocoa and Desert Sand inks.
 
Hope you'll go over to the CCEE Stampers challenge blog and check out the beautiful cards made by the rest of the team .Of course, we would love for you to add yours, too.
 
My card is entered into the challenge at Aud Sentiments-Card or project with a Christmas or Holiday sentiment.

I never even thought of a Christmas card - but of course I can see from yours (and Lois's) that it's a perfect take on it. I love your music papers and sweet bird, and the punched border is just fabulous.
