A Song Challenge for Muse.....

Hello everyone: I have another post to share with you today, this time is for Muse . Our Muse for this week is Michele Ferfuson and, we are asked to make a card inspired by her card but also guess what song inspired her card.  To add icing on this challenge cake, our card should also be inspired by a song and if possible, get a Utube version of it.
I truly hope I'm doing this right, I think we are suppose to provide the link to our song and we are suppose to guess our songs first on our reply to each other's cards without looking at the video.
Goodness!! so far, I have no idea what songs inspired the other ladies and Michelle's cards, I have somewhat of a guess, I hope my guess is right.
Anyway, here is my card, my inspiration song could be talking about ME!!! So, look at my card and think about what makes me tic. It might be a bit difficult for some of you who don't know me very well but, for those of you who do (and you know who you are, LOL!!) you probably be able to guess. I will give you a hint.....read the sentiment very carefully.  I've used it before but this time it's all about me.


Ok, on to this card.....the image is as old as I don't know what!!! All I can say about it is that I bought it a long time ago. It's unmounted red rubber, I just love this ballerina shoes, to me, the way this lady dancers dance is amazing. I stamped it on a panel of Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored the shoes with the aqua painter and SU Regal Rose marker, I wanted to give them just a hint of pink.  The ballerina's tights are done with Pearl shimmer paint, after all, I think the tights they wear are this color. Here is a close up that shows the shimmer better.


I also stamped the pretty flourishes with SU Strawberry Slush and then, stamp them again with Versamark ink to heat emboss the image with some iridescent embossing powder.
Michele's muse card had 4 die cuts with the word JOY so, I die cut four Musical Notes from My Favorite Things with gold foil paper.
Here is a picture of the finished inside.


Ok now, here is the link for the SONG , try to guess it first. 
Hmm..I think Michele's song is I get Joy, Joy, Joy"  by Carla and Redemtion?
I hope you like my card and this song, after you listen to it, you will know why I picked it.
Thank you so much for stopping by, until next time, happy dancing.
Hugs from Maria.

  10. Oh WOW!! How super cool I guessed your song!!! At first I thought it was "Joy to the World" but this song doesn't say the word "Joy" several times so I went hunting for it and I found this one because I figured the name of it was "Joy, Joy, Joy" so that is why I thought it was your song and when I saw the video, I just took a chance.
    How awesome you saw LeeAnne in concert, I haven't seen her but I have her CDs, she has a beautiful voice and that song is really powerful and meaningful to me.
    Thank you for stopping by today!!

  11. Well, I admit I was hoping for Bowie's Let's Dance, but your card is a gorgeous tribute to your song choice. Also, we certainly did not intend for Muse to be complicated this week - just to guess Michele's song and maybe use one of your own - you managed very well! So glad you took it all on and joined us this week - hope we'll see you again!

    1. Thank you Ardyth, I was debating about the card I was going to make because I immediately knew what song I wanted. And your challenge IS fabulous, I've never done one with music so it was double enjoyable.
      I hope you do it again because I always love playing along at Muse.
