Merry Monday #80

Happy Saturday afternoon bloggy folks!  I hope we are all doing well and enjoying whatever is planned for today.  I worked 6a-2p, but now I am home smelling the YUMMY meatloaf that Chad has in the oven, and trying not to drool all over the keyboard!  Well, I know you didn't come here to hear about our supper for this evening, so let's get to the real Merry Monday card for the week!
The prompt this week is:

                           Use Music or Create a Carol Inspired card!
Aren't those kids just the cutest?  :)  Here is my card:

This is my all-time favorite Christmas carol.  I especially love to hear Bing Crosby sing it!  I have had this music sheet and others that are similar in design saved on my computer for several years now.  I used to always use them when I made teabag I think this one looks great with the Spellbinders poinsettia die!  After I attached the flower, I thought it needed a    little something more, so I added the twine, and then added gold Stickles to the  twine.  That is hard to see in the photo.  The center of the flower has more of 
those gold beads I have used in the past.  The edges of the music panel are distressed with Frayed Burlap, and all is mounted on a dark green card base.

Well, the meatloaf is calling...gotta run!

Take Care,


ETA:  Here I come again, Hazel!!  I also joined in on Hazel's current weekly challenge...thanks for letting me know, Hazel!!  :)
ETA AGAIN:  This card was an honorable mention at Merry Monday!  YIPPEE!!!  :)
