Imagination Takes Flight

Today's card was based on a quote as a challenge.  Here it is:

 "Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything."

Well my imagination did take flight when I got out my Distress inks and started to play.  I created the background by rubbing the blue Distress ink pads onto my non-stick craft sheet, sprayed with water and then put the paper through the ink. When it was dry, I stamped in the circles, musical notes and the sentiment. I had a piece of the bkg. left over so stamped it with sheet music first then over-stamped the butterfly and cut it out so I could pop dot it onto my card.
Thanks so much for coming by to take a peek.  Have a good week.

Supplies:  stamps; Penny Black, Inkadinkadoo/ Distress inks/ non-stick craft sheet/ gems/ pop dots
