Musical Inspiration

One of the postcard groups I belong to created a challenge to make a music inspired card. It's supposed to be a landscape since it is for the Val Hearder landscape yahoo group. I started out thinking I would make "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Simon and Garfunkel, but I was having trouble fitting everything I wanted in a small format. I started perusing youtube video songs. Three Little Birds by Bob Marley spoke to me. Here is my interpretation of the song, not exactly a landscape but I like how this one turned out. I made the birds whimsical because that seemed to fit the song better.

So, I have a question, I've already sent the cards, but is this considered a copy right infringement? I hope not. I didn't start thinking about it until the cards were sent. I didn't make any money here, just sent three cards to friends. On the written side of the card, I have the words to the song along with the title and Bob Marley listed as writer. I wanted them to understand why I had the birds on a doorstep, in case they had never heard the song.
Have a Creative Day!

It was a private exchange and you gave credit to the original song. Personally I doubt it would be copyright infringement.
BTW I like your interpretation of the song :)

I agree with Carol, I don't think this would be a copy write infringement. I have to say though that before I got to the part saying it was a Bob Marley song I saw the black door and thought of "Paint it Black" by the Beatles.

I don't see anything wrong with copyright. If you cited your source for the lyrics, then you 'done good.'
