StampinB 100th Challenge

A new Thursday brings a new Stampin' B's DT Challenge!! This week we are celebrating our 100th challenge, and challenge hostess Joanne says, "Strike up the band!" Her challenge to us is to create a project using something music related. I had the best time taking on this challenge and so, without further ado, let's meet my card. Ta-da!!
You probably can't take your eyes off my funky and fabulous felt bird, right? This sweet feltie was a prize I won at Get Sketchy last fall and comes from the cute Etsy shop Crafty Paper Girl. I couldn't wait to use it on a card, and today's StampinB challenge was perfect!

The sheet music behind my felt bird was taken from a vintage hymnal I bought last year at a local used book store expressly for deconstructing to use in papercrafting projects. And I was so pleased to dip into my droolworthy Pink Paislee Sweetness pad for the background DP.

Challenges that inspired this card:

I hope you've been inspired to play along with the Stampin' B's!! If you do make a card, post it on your blog or SCS gallery, and link it up to the Inlinkz tool on the
Stampin' B's blog. We'd love to see what you create!! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my little slice of bliss for today!

Paper: SU chocolate chip, SU bashful blue, Pink Paislee Sweetness DP, page from a vintage hymnal

Accessories: MS poinsettia chain punch, SU jewelry tag punch, sponge dauber, Crafty Paper Girl feltie, foam tape, heart charm, brown burlap string, sewing machine, rhinestones

I like your blue/brown color combo. And I love how you can combine several challenges and not make it look like you struggled with it.
