LLBC #14 with a new sketch challenge

Good (late) morning everyone. I wasted soooo much time this morning trying to use my Photobucket account to upload these, but I kept having sizing issues, so I gave up. I really need to upgrade my photoshop so I can do watermarks.

Anyways....today's card is for this week's Lil' Lolita Boutique challenge #14 which calls for you to involve music. This was a tought challenge for me. I ended up having to think outside the box on this one. I've had this 60's Ivy image colored for a couple weeks now, and I had an epiphany with the paper. Birds, singing, music notes. I also added more stamped notes to the Prima. Yay! It works!

I also used a sketch from a challenge site I recently discovered: The Sweet Stop. Now they've obviously been around awhile since they're now on challenge #73! New to me though! So I did use sketch #73 for this card.

"And then".....(lol!) I used the scraps from Ivy's card to created this SCRS Turntable Josh card for my friend's birthday this Sunday. ANOTHER Sept. birthday! I swear I have like 20 birthdays this month!

Materials

Stamps: TPS 60's Ivy digi, SCRS Turntable Josh, "birdie" A Muse sentiment, CTMH Say it in Style and Hot Diggity (music notes)

Paper: BG Offbeat dp, A Muse kraft, CTMH cs

Other: Copics, CTMH ink, brads, edge distresser, paper piercer, and button, Prima flowers, misc. ribbon, Coluzzle
