Have so much turmoil going on, have had a really hard time getting my MOJO on. That being said, I decided to try and combine 5 challenges in 1:
MIX3: What's White and Read all Over (musicians have to read music sheets - LOL#
CAS208: Inspired by a Quote "Music gives a soul to the universe...."

Beautiful swatches of color (they resemble a true artist & musician) for this musical display of artwork! Love that large bg music stamp and the dots of black and sponging add so much to this already wonderful arrangement~

So COOL Barb! I can see a whole story in your card. It has to do with a tortured artist . He is angry because he can't get his music out to the people. But then a letter comes with financing from far away. And so, his music will live on and he is happy once again! Fabulous card!!!

Terrific card, Barb.....and ALL those challenges(boggles my mind). Neva has competition in you being "a queen of multiple challenges"! : ) Love your design and your use of the bold red strokes for drama with your musical theme.
