Inspired by Song--Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge

Elaine always comes up with the coolest challenge themes for the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge, and as soon as I saw these two little gals I knew I had to merge them and then figure out a song to go with them...Hey it works!!!  I also color my image and then pick the dp...backwards works for me LOL.  My Inspirational Song is:  "His Eye is on the Sparrow"...:

Don't you think the line "And I know he watches me",  goes with the girls? The images I merged were Ragged Angel and Urchin with Bird and I absolutely loved to color them, but they do take some time to color.  I do get a bit over the top with detail...it is who I am LOL.

I had this wonderful dp with the sparrow that I thought was perfect for my Theme and cut it in half  and wrapped a few wraps of bakers twine around it and tied a bow. I used the other half turned sideways for the top right corner accent dp piece.  The music dp is a Christmas piece finished in glossy embossing print and added a stacked Poinsetta flower in the corner and my Inspired by Song card is complete.  I am going to have this sitting on my crafting table for the Holiday Season...

Be sure to stop by the Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for this super fun challenge and be sure to grab an image or two from the store and play along with the challenge next week we love to see what you create :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day!!!
