Saturday Spotlight - The Music of Your Soul

Well, here it is Saturday again ... you know what that means ... it's time for another fun-filled SATURDAY SPOTLIGHT with HIDDEN POTENTIAL Challenge! Today it's all about the "Music of Your Soul". Personally, I love music of all types but I probably listen to the most music at holiday time ... like now! I have it playing all day long whether I'm in my crafting room or working around the house ... it just envokes such wonderful childhood memories and makes me happy!
That is the reason for my "holiday" musical creation. The precious angel images I have used are from and I've used Fiskar decal scissors to border them. The base card is Christmas Red cs, next panel is Candystripe from DCWV and the Musical dp is from The Paper Studio. After cutting the musical panels, I distressed-wrinkled and sponged with Ranger Vintage Photo Distress ink. For embellishments I have used the following: Michael's gold metallic thread, Offray red sheer ribbon, Kaiser red half pearls, K&Co. chipboard star and vintage lace which was a gift from one of my Stamp D'Amour friends.
