Challenge #71 Inspired by Music

Welcome to our 71st challenge here at Aurora Wings, hosted by the Stella Team with the exciting new theme

They say "Music speaks to the heart in ways words cannot express."  The beautiful thing is music is like a time machine.  One song... the music, the lyrics, the mood...can take you back to a moment like nothing else can.  Any music works here, a movie or TV series soundtrack, a nursery rhyme, classical or popular, with or without lyrics.  We're excited to see what inspires you.

Please remember our rules.

No Back Linking
Must be a finished project with a hand colored (traditionally, or digitally) image following the set theme. No pre-colored images allowed.
ONE ENTRY LIMIT if using an image other than Aurora Wings
THREE ENTRY LIMIT if ALL are Aurora Wings images
