Music Speaks What Cannot Be Expressed

Whooo Hoo! It's Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images and you know what that means! Time for a new featured image that is on sale, today only, for a special price! Today's image is Clarinet, from Shelly's Images.You can pick up this fantastic image in store today only for a special sale price! Check out her other fabulous images, too, while you're there!

For my project today, I have used today's featured image, Clarinet, colored with Promarkers. I went on a search and find mission, to get these musical designer papers, specicically to use with this image, and finally found them at Hobby Lobby. The image is punched out using ascalloped circle punch from EK success, and the matted on black. I used a decorative corner punch, to punch corners of the white musical DP. The red and black spotted paper is from my stash. I've used red roses by recollections, and a gray pearled trinket pin by Maya Road. The sentiment is computer generated and then punched using a tag punch by Stampin Up. The ribbon on the tag is from my stash. I added glitter and sparkle to the clarinet image and to the red roses using a clearstar gelly roll pen.

The Tag sentiment says:

Music Speaks What Cannot Be Expressed,
Soothes The Mind and Gives It Rest,
Heals The Heart and Makes It Whole,
Flows From Heaven To The Soul.
