Inspired by Words challenge at Time Out

Hello all!
we're kicking off another challenge over at Time Out Challenges and we're asking you to get inspired by the following words- "If music be the food of love, play on".  You can take whatever creative direction you wish from that phrase and just run with it!
     Our guest designer for this challenge is Rosemary so please take a minute to check out her blog and say hello.
      I decided I wanted to use a bird on my card as that was saying 'music' to me for some reason. I started off by cutting part of a circle from a piece of white cardstock as I had seen this fabulous card
Dee's Art Utopia
on the wonderfully creative blog Dee's Art Utopia (you really should go and spend some time browsing her gorgeous cards!) and I wanted to do something similar.  I stuck some patterned vellum behind the white card and then added a stamped and fussy cut bird on the edge of the circle, a stamped sentiment and a couple of scrap paper pennants, attached with a heart brad  - picking up on the 'love' from the inspiration phrase.


         Entering this into the challenges at Fantastic TuesdayThrough the Craft room door and Tuesday Throwdown.

       Thanks for popping in and please do come and join us in this fortnight's challenge :)

Birds do sing so no wonder they came to your mind from music! Very clever take on the challenge and I love the layout and colors. xxx
