DT for Ruby's Rainbow - Music

It's time for another challenge at Ruby's Rainbow and this fortnight the theme is


What a fantastic theme huh? This theme makes me want to sing just like Agnetha (or was it Frida) -

Thank you for the music
The songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it ..

Who indeed? Not me. I love music, and musical theatre in particular. Thankfully I have a fellow fan for a best mate and she and I go to every musical that comes our way. In six months we have seen everything from Jersey Boys to Love Never Dies, Hairspray to Dr Zhivago.

So for my DT this week I wanted to bring the theatre to a card. Here's what I created:

Copics used:
Hair: E25, E35
Skin: E000, E00, E11
Dress & Hat: R17, R27, R29, YG63, YG67
Gloves and Boots: C3, C5, C9, BV29 
Digi Stamp: Make It Crafty - Antoinette
Buckle and choker - Gelly Pen "metallic"
Paperclip brad and ribbon from my stash.

I love this gorgeous stamp - the beautiful Antoinette from Make It Crafty. She reminds me of a Moulin Rouge girl -

 pausing to remember the amazing version of "El Tango de Roxanne" in the movie and Ewan McGregor singing "why does my heart cry.."  Awww. As far as musicals go it's not brilliant, but that song redeems it.

This was such a fun challenge and I loved seeing what my teammates came up with. I hope you'll join us at Ruby's Rainbow this fortnight for our music challenge.

Also entered into the following challenges:

The Shabby Tea Room - Photo inspiration
Bearly-Mine - My favourite things (ribbon, copics and DP)
Until next time,
