Yes Virginia..... I'm Inspired.....

Over on Virginia's blog she shared some wonderful photo's her daughter took of son and his friends with their bright coloured Cello cases.  She then challenged us to create with this inspiration photo.
 

 Isn't it wonderful.  Here's what I created.

I made the xylophone with bright coloured pieces of card.  I used some black enamel accents for the screws.  The scallops were made with punched circles stamped with some music ( a stamp by Kiwi Stamping)   The ledger background is a Hero Arts cling stamp and the sentiment is part of a stamp from a Hero Arts set.  I just inked up the word "Celebrate"   Back to my usual CAS style!
Also for Simon Says Stamp ~ Anything Goes~ challenge

I'm off to the beach tomorrow for 4 days R & R.  I am hoping to take some stamps and papers with me ~ even if I just get some colouring done.   

Take care

Dawn

This is so cool, Dawn - very graphic with so much punch! And, you created the xylophone all by yourself - amazing! Full of color and fun!
