Inspired by a song...

Over at Glitter n sparkle this week, the theme is 
"inspired by a song"
so we would like you to create a card and let us know 
what song inspired you to make it...

 I was certainly inspired by a song for this card!
I was watching "the sound of music" while picking my image.... lol!

I used the eldeweiss image from the "Switzerland bundle"
over at Ikes Art.
Its a lovely set of images, including this edelweiss,
a swiss cow (wearing a cowbell!), a scene of a swiss
 cottage with mountains and cablecar, a swiss army knife and all its features
and even a swiss stamp!
It's a bumper bundle!
I also wanted to use the cow for a card - i printed him out, coloured him
(which took an age!) 
and then promptly lost him! :(

Oh well.

(UPDATE: 30 / 01/ 16 - 6:45pm...
 I just found the cow I coloured - in between my big shot plates!!! lol! )

I used my docrafts embossing folder, 
printed out the words of the edelweiss song 
and embossed and inked the edges.
Then I coloured the image with my promarkers and poped it some some
 3d foam to stand off the verse.
 Glossy accents finished the petals. 
A couple of die cut butterflies and
a punched butterfly finished this card.
