DYSU #45 - Inspired by a Song!

Hi everyone! Welcome back to a new challenge here at DYSU! With the holidays just around the corner, I love using music to set the mood. So, this week, we want your projects to be Inspired by a Song! Please be sure to let us know in your post what your song is. ;)

This week's Sponsors:

JLJ Designs
$10 Gift Certificate

Di’s Digi Downloads
Winner’s Choice of 5 Digis

So, my inspiration was "White Christmas"...although, my card didn't turn out to be very white, is quite Christmas-y, however!  The sentiment is from the lyrics and I believe that the main image reflects the song...

This ADORABLE image is from Di's Digi Downloads and is called, "Penguins Walk".  I coloured the image with Copic markers and then I used Liquid Applique for all of the fur trim and Viva Decor Pearl Pens in Cream for the snowflakes and on the snowy ground.  I was happy to get to use my new Die-namics File Tab die from was the perfect way to make space for a sentiment!  For a detailed Supply List, please scroll to the bottom of this post!

I look forward to seeing your projects that were inspired by song over at DYSU!
