"Inspired by Song" Challenge

After realizing what the next theme was for the Lollipop Crafts Challenge would be, I thought, OMG, what in the world can I create? Well, it was the Memorial Day weekend and the song, "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree" came to mind....then the "lightbulb" went on. LOL.

It's about a soldier who sent a letter to his sweetheart telling her he's coming home but he's unsure if she still wants him. If she does, he asked her to tie a yellow ribbon around the ole oak tree.

Here's part of the lyrics......
...If you still want me,
Oh, tie a yellow ribbon 'round the ole oak tree.
It's been three long years, do you still want me?
If I don't see a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree, I'll stay on the bus,
forget about us, put the blame on me,
If I don't see a yellow ribbon 'round the ole oak tree.

He then asked the bus driver to look for him as he can't bear to see what he might see, then the whole bus starts cheering because there were 100 yellow ribbons on the oak tree.

With that in mind, I came up with this card.....
