Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #152! Musical Inspiration!!

Good morning Krafty people!!  This week, as the title says, we are to create a project inspired in some way by music.  Elaine is our super duper hostess this week and her project is beautiful.  Now we have plenty of images to choose from, especially as all of the Annie images in the latest October Release are dancers.  I expect some of the other girls will have done awesome things with some of them.  Always having to be awkward, I wanted to do something different.  This is one of my favourite snowman images ever and is from our very talented artist Emilie Goulet.  This one always makes me think of the song 'Walking in a Winter Wonderland'.  Fortunately for me, Kraftin' Kimmie has that sentiment in her Holidays Sentiments  set.

So I made an A2 size card, which I rarely do any more.  I used some gorgeous Very Merry Christmas papers from Echo Park.  My card base is kraft and I matted the green snowflake paper onto some Cranberry Crisp and then some Wild Wasabi cardstock.  After colouring my snowman and his birdie friends, I added some Stardust Stickles, then cut out the image using my Circle Nesties.  I framed it using one of my Pinking Circles dies on some more Cranberry Crisp CS.  I used kraft paper for the sentiment, which I heat embossed using....  do you believe it...  Winter Wonderland white embossing powder.  I added a few musical notes, also using kraft CS.  Lastly, I added a clear snowflake in the top right corner after putting some Stardust Stickles all over it to give it a bit of sparkle.

So that's it.  I'll bet you can come up with a creation inspired by music.  We look forward to seeing them all up until next Friday, when Kim will draw a random winner, who will win the stamp Elaine has used on her creation, which is Aurelia the angel.  Just link up your project to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog.

Happy Stamping,
