Music time

Morning everyone and happy May to you all! Hope you are doing fine and having a good day so far. Well, mine has just started, but I think I will do a restart on it and go and rest for a bit. It was a late night the other one with tons of pain and really lots of thoughts running around in my head. At least I had my "crafting cat" with me. It's he who normaly walks right into the paints and glitter and make me start all over or drown my creations in more flowers and glitter.

Today however have left the glitter out of the card and worked with some crackle paint instead on the cello. Had a friend in school who played that instrument with such a joy. And her cello was old and a bit cracked in the varnish. I always found that beautiful for some reson. It look like it had character and had lived a life of it's own. So the image used for this weeks challenge over at the Paper Shelter is called Cecilia and is a real classy one in my mind. The image reminds me of my friend.

Will try to retake the photo later. 
Having a really sunny start of the day and it got a little bright, and yes I was running late with this card, even if I started it weeks ago. LoL

I have paired the image up with some designer papers from Glitz called "Hello Friend". I loved the soft colours in this pad, but being me I couldn't help making them a bit more dramatic by using a dark coral coloured card stock together with pink. And even if my photo doesn't show it, they actually match really well. I have used a bunch of flowers from Kort och godt together with a mix of flowers from WOC and I am roses as well. Some Prima swirls, pearls, lace, charms, glas leafs from Magnolia and a feather from stash complete the whole creation.

The gift voucher
The prize up for grabs this week is a gift voucher worth $30 if you play with a TPS image and three (3) digis of your choice if you play with another brand.

I hope that you will come and join us in our new challenge which is set to "Music Maestro" this week. We want to see some music on your card. A musical image would be great but we settle for designer papers and embellishments as well. We are not that picky but if your creation doesn't follow our theme it will not be put into the draw for the chance of winning our lovely prize.

And something else that really doesn't have anything to do with my creation today. I just want to say thank you one more time to all of those that left my kid Willy a comment on his card the other day. He was thrilled and embaressed at the same time as he doesn't like being in focus. When he made the card he said I want to try to win something, and then he is so lucky that he does just that. Got picked as the winner over at High Hopes that also offered him a guest designer spot. My heart is warmed, thank you to all of you.

Love n hugs
Marie

Gorgeous card Marie, what a great idea to use the crackle paint on the cello, that would work great on a fence as well.Might pinch your idea if you don't mind.
