Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge

Happy Monday

This time over at The Outlawz , the theme is "Get inspired from your favorite actor/actress or singer."

Our wonderful sponsor this week is

The image I am using is called Mary Poppins


I used MFT products to create this card.

The clouds are created with distress ink and the cloud stencil, and the sentiment is done on the PC and cut out with Fishtail Flag Frames

Now why you may ask Mary Poppins?

Well firstly I just adored the image, and secondly I loved the film as a child and also watched it several times with my own children. 

In recent years I have come to love a classical musician Andre Rieu and I will let you into a little secret, one item on my bucket list is to see him in concert. 

Here is a wonderful clip at one of his concerts and the most glories voice of Mirusia and another good reason to choose this image.
