Totally Papercrafts Challenge

Morning all, it's time for a new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts and this week it's my turn to pick the challenge and I have chosen the theme

Inspired by A Song

Easy peasy, all you need to do is create something which has been inspired by a song, doesn't even need to be your favourite song.  Please tell us in your post what song you've been inspired by.


This weeks fabulous sponsor is
who are offering a $10 gift certificate to their store

And here is my card. Which really was inspired by the song Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd. I had originally planned to use this image for a previous challenge - Summer. It was while I was on holiday though and although I had taken this SC image with me, I didn't actually have a clear idea what I was going to do. And then it came to me but I didn't actually have any of the stuff with me to make a card like I wanted. So I thought I'd keep it for another challenge some other time.  I already knew that I had picked Inspired by A Song for this week but wasn't sure what song I would use. And then, one night on the way home from Cass' I heard Wish You Were Here on the radio and I knew then that my card would be perfect for the challenge! So, this really was inspired by a song... A classic song, which should never be attemped to be sung by anyone other than Dave Gilmour (organisers of Olympics Closing Cermony please note!!!)
