Can you hear the music?

I have been wanting to do the Wacky Wednesday challenge on the Rubbernecker Blog since they started TWO weeks ago. The third week was a sketch challenge. Here is what I came up with:

Now, some of you who like to be be the challenge police will say that my card does not follow the sketch, But! It does: Here's how: 1) The creator of the sketch took the liberty to change her squares on the side to ribbon. And she moved her circle embellishments. Therefore giving all the rest of us liberty to make a few minor changes as well. 2) My squares just decided to join together and become a rectangle. 3) My three little circle embellishments got shoved to a different location by the larger image panel. While they got shoved over, they each split in two.....resulting in another 3 circles in the bottom corner. 3) My image required the card to be changed to a square (this is a 5x5 card size) and that also resulted in the required alterations to the layout (and trust me, I tried THREE times to make my second bg panel shorter on the one side....the larger image just did NOT work with that got s....t.....r.....e.....t....c....h....e....d to fill in that space!)

See?! I TOLD you that this fit the sketch!! (ROTFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Ok!! I'm really reaching here, but hey!! I wanted to use this image with this sentiment and I got a card done!! PFFFFFLLLLTTTT!!!! hehe

Some other details: Now, I am NOT a pink type of girl. I like my browns, blues, neutrals. The reason I even have this pink paper was for a project for a little girl cousin (which never got done....go figure). I just thought that "Erma" needed to express her different music beat. And so enters the pink. And incredibly BRIGHT GREEN. Of course I did not have embellishments that matched these common colors (snort) so I got out my copics and colored some clear self adhesive gems. The image panel is up on dimensionals. PERFECT!! Supplies: Paper: Gina K's 120# luxury white, SU's green galore, Prima Marketing Baby Girl Collection~Lullaby. Inks: Archival Jet black, SU's pink passion. Stamps: both image and sentiment can be found at Rubbernecker. Accessories: Score Pal, clear gems, Copic Ciao (A) markers, dimensionals
