Fancy at TPS Challenge #234

Hi everyone,
Hope all is well with you and yours. 
I'm so excited today as I just found out my twin Sister is coming to visit this spring. 
I haven't seen her for over a year and a half and miss her so much....
and now I can't wait for spring.

Today starts a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and the theme is Fancy.  
We would like to see lots of detail on your creations.

I've used a sweet image called "Melody" available here.

For some reason I gravitate to red, black and white in February......
could it be because of Valentines?

Shape is a Go-Kreate die
Sentiment is LOTV Everyday Grunge messages
MB Musciality Collage die
La-La Land heart treble clef
Button from my stash
Coloured with Copics:
Face: E11, E21, E000, R20, R11
Red: R46, R24, R22, R20
Grey: W9, W7, W5
Red dots coloured with Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink
Wink of Stella Gold on the guitar as well as Glossy Accents

As always there is a wonderful prize for the winner this week, 
especially if you use a TPS image on your creation.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope to see you in the challenge.

Well, gravitate away, Miss Pat! Those colors look striking, especially with your little guitarist (beautiful coloring!) I like the way you have put the music die cuts everywhere, and your shading is (as always) incredible! The sentiment is fantastic! (the dotted red paper peeking from behind is a great touch!) hugs, de
