Musical Inspiration at Heart 2 Heart Challenges

Welcome to this week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenges.  Loving this challenge - using a song, make a piece of artwork that reminds you of that song. Does that make sense? I have been humming Fun, Fun, Fun by the Beach Boys all week.

I couldn't find a Close to My Heart T Bird image so I used the GTO image from our Stamp Set, Maximum Power, D1564.

So let's say that I used Ronnie and the Daytona's Little GTO song for my card as well.

I decided to vintage up my card because after all, the songs are from the 60's.  
Here is my card:

Iused our new paper pack, Laughing Lola (X7170B), the beautiful Base and Bling Floral Accents (Z1883), and the Black Mini Medleys (Z1862).  See the words under my picture?  That is the zip strip off of one of the patterned papers.  I am hoping that this card has a feminine feel to it.

So now it is your turn!  What stamp set has you singing and dancing and what song are you singing?  After you finish your artwork please go to  www.heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com and post a link to your project.  I cannot wait to see what you make!

I used the card pattern from My Favorite Things to make this card so I am entering it into their challenge.
