All I can answer is...Thank the Lord I don't have to choose!!! I am so passionate about this paper and ink hobby of mine, but before I had it...outside my family and faith...I was most passionate about music. It has always been a huge part of my life...probably since before I can remember when, as a wee baby...I heard my mom and dad singing at home and at church. My favorites today come from contemporary praise and worship music, and they bring me so much JOY (EVEN through tears!!) ;) When I saw Embellish Magazine's color challenge with music, I knew I had to get back in the game with one of my most favorite challenge blogs! I found these colors a little difficult to interpret...they varied from computer to computer... ...is that mocha or purple on bottom?...and I wasn't sure if that middle color was green or gold? Who knows...but luckily...interpretation is the name of the game. I used a little more of a gold color than others did, I think, but tried to add a little green to it just in case. And unfortunately I don't have ANY music themed stamps!!! Not real smart for a music lover, I know! I did have some sheet music paper from the Paper Studio, though, so I embossed my little bird cage right on that, added a little shading with distress inks, and cut it out.
I had a little scrap of paper that I liked with the colors I was using, and added trims for the rest of my background. The ribbon is from a couple different Etsy shops. My flowers were handmade with Papertrey's BB dies and the smallest one from a small star punch. The sentiment was done on my computer...from the heart!
Anyway...hope you like it! It's so good to play along with Embellish again! The DT has some beautiful inspiration to share!!
Remember...keep a song in your heart!!
