The Real Lyrics

Did you ever sing along to one of your favorite songs and find out that the lyrics you've been singing are all wrong?  There's some classics, I even had a calendar that featured some of the funniest ones around but the one this card reminds me of is mine.  In the Pink Floyd song "Wish You Were Here" the lyrics are "did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage".  But what I thought it was is "did you exchange your walk on part of the wall for a leaf grown in a cage".  Personally I like my lyrics better and sooner or later I'm going to commemorate those mistaken lyrics by using this die and putting a leaf instead of a bird in the cage.

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Die-Namics Contempo Cage"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"
paper - Stampin' Up "Dusty Durango", "Crushed Curry" and "Bermuda Bay" cs; Cosmo Cricket "Togetherness" dp
miscellaneous - My Favorite Things "Mini Tab Quartet" and "Little Open Scallop Strip"  die-namics; the Cat's Pajamas "Buttons" Cut Ups; bling; machine stitching

Here's the challenges:
My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club MFTWSC80 - sketch
Tuesday Throwdown -#106  Hot Colors
Partytime Tuesday PTT#76 - Let's Get Punchy
Crafts & Me #92 - Stitching
