21 cards - #32

Hello friends.  I started to put the cards I made for the January challenge at Motley Soul Mixed-Media Art, and when I designed the piece for holding the pages, I miscalculated and made it too wide.  Rather than rip things apart, I just decided to add more pages to fill the extra space.  Using a challenge from the OWSE Yahoo group, I made another one page today.  The challenge is to use song lyrics on your piece of art.  This is a February challenge, so today is the last day to get it finished to be eligible for a prize. 

I chose a chorus that we sang a lot when we were young. 

My background is painted and stenciled with acrylic paints.  I printed the words on my computer and die cut them with a Spellbinders labels die.  I inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink. 

At the bottom, I cut some strips of patterned paper and glued that down. 

This is actually my second attempt on this page.  I really did not like the first one and completely ripped off the front and started over. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a blessed day.
