Music of Life

Happy Saturday.  So happy to see the weekend here.  I was inspired by the challenge at Splitcoast.
(inspired by bowl below from the Global Table site)
My card is pretty straight forward.  I began with a piece of heavy cardstock and inked it up using Distress inks, some Memento markers and water.  When the piece was dry, I die cut the ferns and added them to the embossed card front.  Stamped the sentiment then used a circle punch to add it to the front of my card with pop dots.

I am also adding my card to these challenges:
Addicted to CAS- die cuts
Little Red Wagon- all purpose card

Hope you enjoy your weekend and that you get a few snippet of time to yourself.

Supplies:  stamp; Rubbernecker/ die-Memory Box/ Cuttlebug eb folder/ pop dots
