A little help from my friends - CAS-ual Fridays Challenge

In this post, my card is going into the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays CFC #46.  Create a clean & simple project based on a song.
I really had to think about this one.  It took a looooog time!  But, when I least expected it, I thought of this sentiment from a Beatles song.  This sentiment stamp is from a retired Stampin' Up set.  And it's one that I've always loved.  Are you old enough to remember "I get by with a little help from my friends"?

I hope you can see the sheet music impression on the main panel of the card.  If you click on a photo, you should see a larger version.  I sponged my sentiment panel with some kraft colored ink before removing it from the Spellbinders die.  Everything else is pretty straightforward.  I'll list my supplies below.
This card came together quickly.  That's a rarity for me!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!
