GDT post for Joanna Sheen Challenge: Music and lyrics

Good morning Lovelies! How are you today? I'm very excited to be posting my GDT post for the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog - the challenge that starts today is called 'Music and Lyrics' - and when you enter don't forget to add GDT after your name and you might be lucky enough to be in this position in a short time!! Here's what I did:

I used the stamp called sock hop and is on a group of stamps called keyboard that you can get from the Joanna sheen shop here. I think its a fabulous image that can be used for festive or non - festive cards - aren't those mice just so cheeky? I've coloured the image with promarkers and used a spellbinders die to cut it out. Then I've added it to some musical note paper and then some papers from HOTP. The poinsettia are from WOC and the charm came from my local craft shop before it closed down. The mesh I've had for years from when Lakeland did crafts and the sentiment is an old one by hunky dory.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
