Life is Wonderful!

This week's challenge at The Card Concept was not an 
easy one for me.

I love the inspiration photo below and had a ton of ideas but nothing I tried
was working for me.
After a few failed attempts - more than I care to admit - I decided to strip
the card back to the key elements that inspired me in the first place.
The butterfly, the music notes and the colors.
When I did that and went with a CAS style I had a card in a matter 
of minutes.

Check out the rest of the DT's cards HERE and I look forward
to seeing your card in the gallery.

Happy Stampin'
