Feeling lyrically inspired for the MIO hop

Welcome to the August My Inky Oasis hop.

        In case you missed it here is a link to Laura's gorgeous creation.

I found this challenge to be a hard but creative one...mostly because I didn't think I had stamps that fit lots of the lyrics I thought of. But eventually I was reminded of Bob Marley's cheerful song "Don't Worry, Be Happy" and picked this verse to illustrate: 

"Rise up this mornin',
Smile with the risin' sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true"

Products used:
Tim Holtz stencils Rays and Mini set #5
