Let’s Get Shabby challenge #15

Hi, finally, getting back to the swing of things.  This month’s challenge is all about “Music”:

IMG_0927 IMG_0928 This is Gabby wearing a dress I made for her.  It has music all threw the dress and I cross stitch the word music on her collar.  It’s hard to see but the letters are different instruments that make up the word music.  I used Heidi Swapp’s music crepe paper.  I used Tim’s distress ink’s and maya road rose’s ribbon.    I made the roses from zipper’s, you can scroll down to see my tutorial.  This is on prima’s pocketbook canvas.  This is the front cover:
