JB42...A Caroling We Will Go!




Well, I am a day earlier than usual with my Jingle Belles entry...woohoo! This week, Stef and Lauren have asked us to go caroling...how fun! I love to go caroling, especially when there are goodies at the end! :) So, we were to be inspired by any holiday song, and I chose my favorite, "O Come, All Ye Faithful." This has been my favorite hymn for years...I especially love to hear the Bing Crosby version. For this card, I used another of those song papers, and chose the colors of my cardstock to match the image. My stamped image is another from the O Holy Night set from Inkadinkado that I used a couple of posts ago. It's layered with a large scalloped circle adorned with some small red gems from my stash. I used a gold gel pen over the halo on the image. And behind the image, I used the 3 colors of MS bakers twine I have, twisted them up three different times, adhered them behind the red panel, and used all three colors to tie a bow around them. Wow, I didn't mean to go into such detail over a simple card like this...I guess I was just chatty this evening! I hope you all are "having a good one", whatever you're doing! Take care! :)
