Q & L Challenge - Silence and Dazzle

Its Craft Barn challenge time again.  The words to choose from are 'Silence' or 'Dazzle'.  I went for a simple one - 'Silence is Golden'.  This song was first recorded in 1964 as a 'B' side to Rag Doll by The Four Seasons and then in 1967 by The Tremeloes.


I wasn't sure how to depict 'silence' but this image, which comes from a Debbi Moore Designs set, was what sprang to mind.  The corner flourish is Inkadinkado and the stencil is Dotty Flowers by Dylusions.  I used Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade.  The song title is written on gold painted card and the gold and black ribbon are from my stash.   I hope you are not affected by the awful wet weather we have been having here in the UK.  Thank you so much for visiting.  Have a lovely weekend and take care!  Christine xx
