Green Paper Art Challenge

I found out that Mary over at Green Paper was offering an art challenge using these images she supplied:
And here is what I came up with:
I created a wall hanging, covering thick cardboard with vintage sheet music, and using the 'envelope' image, created a pocket for various tags, including the one Mary supplied.
Looking thru my stash I found a few "French" themed images as well as butterflies to tie in with the sheet music I used.                                                
I imagined this gal had gone to Paris and saved a few souvenirs..

 This was a fun challenge! Thanks, Mary, for the inspiration! Be sure to check Green Paper for other's who participated~~they are so talented!!
