Good Morning All, 
It's time for a brand new challenge over at 
where the theme for this fortnight is
Here's my card

I've opted for black & white & used a sponsor silhouete image set
The Audition from Stitchy Bear stamps.  
I printed them all out & made a border using a Martha Stewart punch.
All the while I was making this card, I was singing the Elton John song,
Tiny Dancer, to myself! I do love that song!

Hope you enjoy the music!

I created the sentiment, a well known quotation, in my graphics program.
I cut it out with a Marianne Creatables Die (one of my faves).

I added a few little gems from my stash & a little bit of recycled ribbon
(the sort added to garments to keep them on the hanger)
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you can play along in the challenge.
