Mid-Challenge Inspiration Post for Challenge #71

Welcome to our Mid-Challenge Inspiration post for Challenge #71, hosted by the Aurora Team, with the lovely theme "Inspired by Music."

Although this theme is quite open to interpretation, we would like some reference to it in your post, if it is not immediately apparent in your project, please.   Any music works here, a movie or TV series soundtrack, a nursery rhyme, classical or popular, with or without lyrics, sheet music paper or an instrument in your image or embellishments.  We're excited to see what inspires you.

Please remember our rules.

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

Also, because of the difficulties we have experienced with Facebook entries, I regret that we will no longer be accepting them on the Challenge Blog.  Thank you for your understanding.  

If you do not have a blog and would still like to enter this challenge,  please email me at donnamundinger(at)gmail(dot)com with your name, a picture of your entry and Aurora Wings Challenge #71 in the subject line, and I will add it to our Aurora Wings Submissions Blog, where it can be viewed and commented on, and to the Linky so you can participate here. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx
