OLW112 - Song in My Heart




This week's One Layer Wednesday challenge is to make a card inspired by your favourite song, singer, composer, performer or something else musical.  It can be "Happy Birthday" or a Christmas carol or a hymn, classical or country or jazz or blues or showtunes or whatever inspires you!

I love all types of music. Because I play piano, I have spent a lot of time listening to and playing classical music, but, if you look at my MP3 player list, you can tell that one of my favourites is David Bowie. Since today is Hallowe'en, "Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)" seemed especially appropriate.  I have a list of all his song titles, and every once in a while, I go through them to find inspiration. Today I found three (see below for the others!)

OLW112 Rules

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers allowed!

2. Make a card that is inspired by music in some way.   Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum and NO ADDITIONAL LAYERS of card stock.

3. Post your card online and link it to the InLinkz button to the right.  If you link to your blog, please link to the specific post, not your blog’s main page.
4. HAVE FUN! I am looking forward in seeing how you are inspired by music (feel free to get carried away like I did and make more than one)

Life on Mars?

The Prettiest Star

With your musical background and talent, I'll bet you had to restrain yourself from making even MORE adorable and dynamic cards, huh, Ardyth? I knew it!

Musical, huh? Not my strong suit. Sugar. Music. Kraft. I'll see what drops out of the juke box in the bean. As I'm eating Halloween candy. Out of a kraft paper bag.

LOVE your bright and colorful monstah card! Fun challenge. It will certainly be interesting to see all the "song" cards in the OLW112 gallery. :)

Oh Ardyth, you are a girl after my own heart!!! DAVID BOWIEEEEEE We are away this weekend so I hope I have time to play on Monday.


I am really going to have to think about this one .... so many 80's songs ...so little time.

Ardyth, YOU are a rock star! These are all great, but I have to admit, I adore the little monsters! Sweet! Bev

Tracey McNeely said...

All your cards rock Ardyth! Love your monster card,but I love the glittery spaceman and the glittery star? Oh my.

Fabulous cards! I love that sparkly orange hair on the purple monster. I'm sure Bowie would be impressed!

Geri said...

Your monsters are far too cute to be scary! Seriously, the purple guy actually is sportin' the David Bowie hair-do! The star card is simply "super". Love the black sentiment.

Julia Aston said...

Three wonderful CAS cards! love your monsters - especially the one with the fuzzy yellow hair!

Bobby said...

Never mind the musical inspiration. Where do you get (and keep) all those stamps to go with the inspirations? I could never do a one layer card since I own only a few semtiment stamps - and plan to keep it that way.

Loving the monster stamps. Whose are those? Great job. Subscribing in my reader.

Benzi said...

HAHAHA...those are the cutest monsters I've ever seen. What a fun card and your star card is very pretty.

Susan Raihala said...

Adorable cards! What a fun challenge. I'll be uploading mine later today!

Lisa Lara said...

I love your OLC monsters.

Deborah Frings said...

Super cards and a fun challenge too! Must go off and have a think!

Kelly Griglione said...

Ack, love those monsters! I'm so intrigued by the last guy's orange/yellow hair, what is that?! Nice grounding on them too. Love the other two cards you made for this challenge too.

Hi Ardyth ... I just found your OLW Challenge via Shirley Bee ... it's just such the ultimate CAS, love it! All three cards are fab ... I agree with Geri ... the hair on 'monsters' is so Bowie ... as are the teeth (or at least that's how they were at the time!) Bon Dimanche ... Anita
