   The theme for this week's challenge at QKR Stampede is inspired by music along with the usual anything goes.
   Having taught at a music school where the most popular instrument played was the violin (and one of my grand daughters is also learning to play the instrument) I just had to use this image of the turtle violinist (number 24137) which I coloured using Promarkers and then matted onto black card. The background paper has been in my stash box for sometime having printed several sheets to use on an earlier project and was matted and layered onto core'dinations couture cardstock and white card. The happy birthday greeting was free in an old magazine and I attached two card candi to it.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Digi Choosday - anything goes
   Passion For Promarkers - just add glitter (the cardstock is glittered)
   Stamping Sensations - anything goes
   Creative Fingers - anything goes
   Creatalicious - anything goes with stars
   C.R.A.F.T. - anything goes
   Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - for a child
   Simon Says Stamp Monday - happy birthday
   Animal Friends - sport or hobby
   A Gem of a Challenge - birthday wishes
