Name that Tune

The CAS-ual Fridays Challenge (CFC46) this week REALLY made me think. The challenge: to make a CAS based on a song. I went though my stamps quite a few times before deciding on a song, "You've Got a Friend" by James Taylor.

I started by stamping the sentiment in the center of my card base. I die cut my frame, stamped it in Crumb Cake ink and adhered it on dimensionals. Then I did the same with the flowers, however I used liquid glue to adhere them. I really fussed over the finishing touches. I debated calling the card finished with just the frame, but decided that I needed something near the bottom of the card for balance. The Crumb Cake Scallop border & Linen Thread added just that!

I linked "You've Got a Friend" above if you'd like to listen :) Happy Friday!

Stamps: Defining Words (Wplus9), Simply Jane (PTI)
Ink: Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Peach Parfait, Old Olive, Early Espresso
Paper: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Simply Jane Dies (PTI), Linen Thread, Scallop die,

if I was a betting gal, I would say this is a winner. It's simple, I like the song and can see it in your card, the design is gorgeous right down to the cute little flowers. And by the way, the blog background is stunning.
