Top 2000, Day Two!

For day two of the Top 2000 Party, I picked "Big Yellow Taxi" by The Counting Crows, which comes in this year at #1693. Here's how my layout turned out...
I painted the background, and then created the tree from woodgrain contact paper; and the birds and other elements were done with colored pencil on white cardstock, cut out and glued on.

This is a song written and originally done by Joni Mitchell (and I think her version is also on the list somewhere); but the Counting Crows cover is my favorite! Here's the video:
