Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue

It is the first challenge of 2020 over at Crafty Cardmakers. The theme of the challenge is anything goes. For this challenge I created this small canvas in remembrance of my dad.  He loved the old song called "Five  Foot Two, Eyes of Blue. 

 I used a couple of musical dies, old sheet music, chipboard guitar and notes, walnut ink, and some small metal embellishments.  The song Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue was written by Ray Henderson in 1925 and sang by several artist over the years. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Remember to pop over to Crafty Cardmakers' Challenge blog to be inspired by our creative design team.
