You Make My Heart Sing!!!!!!!

When I saw these little image at Stretch N Bubbles called Chick LOVE for a mere $2.50 I immediately thought of a Valentine. You know it will creep up on us faster than we think.  Now I know we automatically think of PINK and HEARTS when we think of that date in February but I wanted to do something a bit different.  I guess I sometimes tend to march to the beat of my own drummer.  I right away thought of my sentiment and looked for the sheet music to go with that. I search through all of the challenges going on and Handfull of Stamps had green as their color challenge.  Now you think we would be sick of green after Christmas but I chose a lighter softer green and I flew with it (pardon the pun).

As I said I first printed my sheet music as background and then found some soft green polka dotted paper which was the challenge this week at Daring Cardmakers. I followed a sketch for the challenge at Polly Craft. I used my MS punch to get the scalloped edge for the soft green paper next to the ribbon. I needed to have some pearls on my card for the All Sorts Challenge so I took some wire and strungs some up and curled them into my ribbon which I needed to have on my creation for Nutshells challenge.  I also added stickles to my chicks wings and my ribbon to make them sparkle which was needed for the challenge at Kraftin Kimmie. You have to know that sparkle is almost my signature!!! Now you know I have pearls, well I think I consider them also as beads, I added 3 more across the top of my card and added this to the Cute Card Thursday challenge. I guess I killed two birds with one stone on that one.  Opps sorry birdies didn't mean you two!!!!  Etsy Inspired Challenge always asks you to get inspired by something on their website and this week is no different.  I chose this item.
It is a picture piece of jewelry of a tiny bird. Kinda made me think of these great little Chicks In Love from the talented Alison at Stretch N Bubbles.

I colored the sweet image in with copics, yep no chalk at all this time.  There is a bit of flower soft in the middle of the flower on her head.  I liked the way it softened the look.

The last challenge I entered with this piece of art.  Yes there is 1 more was Creative Card Crew - create anything.

I hope I inspired you to Kreate.
