Loving Lady Luck!

It's been a little while since I had a go at a Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.  So, I thought it was high time I had.  My card is an odd one, I will be the first to admit.  I think it may be a case of the concept I had in my mind might have translated vastly differently in paper. Dunno? This card was definitely born from a crafty soup of images and notions that I had prancing around my left brain (quasi Vegas show inspired, I suspect), but my left brain hadn't bothered to let my right brain in on the action though.  As happens sometimes, hey?  Nevermind. Well, that's my story and I am sticking to it.  *shifty*

Here's this week's WMSC sketch followed by my card.  Enjoy!

How do you do this? Honestly I am looking at all the wonderful layers of elements that all magically seem to go just perfectly together. I could absolutely NEVER do this. It is gorgeous. I love the piano keys and the text over it, the rope like material coming from the tag, too many things to mention each one, but it came together so beautifully. Gorgeous job on this challenge. Don't know if they have winners, but you should win if they do!

Perfect for a recital! And can you get me a deal on a ticket to the "quasi vegas show" in your brain? Your mojo astounds me...and that might let me in on some secrets.
