Christmas Carol

A couple of cards I have created using the Cardmadfairy Creations image called 'Christmas Carol'.  I think this is such a clever name for this image.  Yes, I have coloured in with my watercolour pencils and a Copic pen for her face.  Alas this pen has now fun I am down to one Copic pen in my collection. :-(  That is something I will be working on next year....making my Copic collection bigger.

Anyways, I printed off some sheet music for 'Jingle Bells' to use as the background paper.  Found this lovely stringy silver ribbon in my collection to finish the card.

This time I have cut out 'Christmas Carol' and adhered her to this wonderful embossed panel that I received in a swap.  The best bit is this card has a white core so I dug out my emery board file and sanded some of the top layer of card away. Also went around the edges of both card layers with the scissors edge to give a distressed look.  Finished with little gold star stickers.

More printed off sheet music used here....such a fun and easy background.  The sprig of holly came from a shop bought card I had received in previous years.
This time some blue was used.  I cut Christmas Carol out here and attached her to the embossed Christmas tree panel which I also received in a swap.  Then I used the 'Season's Greetings' rub on and finished with bling on the tree.

Have a terrific day whatever or wherever you are.
