Our theme for the TeaPotter Challenge this week was Music and Dance. Thank you, Lisa for a great pairing of prompts and to Pat (Contrapat~now I know the origin of your SCS 'name').
I adore this Judikins orchestra image...probably a large orchestra type music, but it supports my sentiment which says:
Music unwraps the Heart,
Sings out the Prayer,
Dances the Spirit, &
Opens the Soul.
Basic Grey's 'Urban Luxe' had beautiful papers for my dancers garment as well as the background for the sentiment. On the inside, I restamped the sentiment, included a small piece of vintage sheet music, stamped 5 random grunge small hearts and a piece of the Washi tape down the side.
Total fun. I am hopeful this will bring a smile and happy memories to both Sherry and Earl. I would love to see Earl play if there is a link of you tube.
Thank you kindly for your comments.

This card has a bit of a 40's feel to me with that great ensemble and that fabulous orchestra. Wasn't that a great period for dance and music. Love all your elements but especially the musical score running through the background. And what a beautiful sentiment. I am sure Sherry will adore this too.

This card is cool, Susan. Love that stylish woman. The washi tape at the top is very creative. Great musical vibe going on and I am sure Sherry will love this. And that sentiment stamp is just the best.

There is so much to love about this...that orchestra border caught my eye immediately...it's so cool and is the perfect compliment to the swirly musical score. Of course the fashionably dressed woman is the star with her paper pieced skirt and her red lips and earrings. FAB card mf.

Oh what fun...that orchestra stamp has me chuckling...it is very cool but most violinists are not grinning as they play. And wind players never can play and smile. Love that lady. You use your BG so beautifully.

I knew from the moment I saw this card that you made it, Susan! I love how you always choose the perfect papers to paper piece your characters - this is one classy lady! I also like how you made the musical staff go twirling around her and the sentiment. That sentiment is spot on for this challenge, along with the orchestra!
