Time of the singing birds

At the Shabby Tea Room this week, we are to CASE one of the designer's cards.  I fell in love with this card by guest designer Cheryl Baker:


I love her use of music, the bird, the lace, and her color scheme of pink, black and white.  Here is my CASE of her card:


I love this quote from Song of Solomon, to me it represents hope, the theme of Cheryl's card.  I stamped my music background, then overstamped the bird, trimmed the panel out and framed it in black.  The sentiment is computer generated.  My swirl background was chosen to mimic the swirls in her card.  My lace flowers are from my fabric scrap basket.

Amazingly enough, I just saw the Wplus9 blog, and this card fits the challenge there: in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, the colors are light pink, white, and grey or black, and my theme of hope fits this challenge well, I think. 

Supplies: ivory parchment and black cardstock, designer paper from K&Company Bailey mat pad, Versafine onyx black ink, Hero Arts CG222 Music Background, CG110 Flourish Background, Inkadinkado  97548 Birds Galore, lace scraps

  5. Hi Lin, This card is gorgeous. The bird and the sheet music are perfect and I love the Quote from Soloman that you used; everything goes very well. Great job. (To answer your question reqarding my Christmas tree card, I cut out a label from my cricut cartridge "Lacy Labels" to use for my center panel.)
