GRS DT Challenge!

The Gourmet Rubber Stamps design team is playing a challenge today, to make a project with a bird somewhere on it.  Birds and music just go together, don't you think?  This darling birdhouse is a sure sign that Spring is near!

I am in love with this MME designer paper!  This is the third GRS project I've made with it makes me smile so I just keep coming back to it!  I think it is the music print that is my favorite, and that is what why I chose it for today's project.  This particular pad has been around for a while...since Winter CHA, there are lots of new design available.  If you're like I am, you might have a hard time narrowing your choices!

This layout is SCS Sketch 371. I used a Spellbinder's fleur de lis die for the circular element, adding a teeny, tiny treble-clef-and-notes charm dangling from a jute bow tied to a button.
