Music Soothes the Soul

I have a quick post here with a card I made about my favorite of all things...MUSIC!
As not only a music lover, I have spent the majority of my life as a student of music.  I have a BS in music education  and a background in theater and dance.  I teach kindergarten in a wonderful school in a great school district.  We have an outstanding music teacher at our school.  He is great with the children and provides them with a solid foundation in music education.  I like to use the fine arts as much as possible in my classroom.  As I tell the parents each year.  Your child has two sides of a brain.  I will teach to both sides of their brains.  All research shows that children who are educated with the fine arts are better readers and have a better concept of math than those who are not.  

Now off of my soapbox and back to the card.  I made the card with paper from K&Company, AC Specialities, and Colorbok. 

 I used Quarter Note,one of  my favorite cartridges, for the cuts.  And I added some pink glitter glue, and bling.  And then a pretty gold striped ribbon and bow.
Embrace the fine arts and add some more joy to your life.
