Joy to the World!

Happy Sunday afternoon!  As I had hoped, I'm back on the blog today to share another Christmas card done:
This one features the music background stamp from Recollections that I bought after last Christmas.  I inked the heck out of it with Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap to age it, and then added some gold Stickles around the edges with my finger for a festive feel.  The cute little caroler in the left corner is a digi from Fred, She Said called Emma the Caroler, Pre-colored set.  The sentiment, also inked all to heck, comes from the Signature Christmas set from Papertrey Ink.  LOVE that sentiment set!!
The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up #9:  Anything goes with optional "Christmas tree" twist
The Glory of Christmas #67:  Anything goes with optional "no stamp or digi" twist (I don't seem to be following that one very well anyway!)
Holly Jolly:  Use a die (Spellbinders ovals and scalloped ovals)
Crafty Calendar:  Anything goes
That's all for today!  Thanks again for stopping by!


  1. Oh, so pretty! Simple, but beautiful. Love the bit of glitter around the edges. The font on that sentiment is fabulous. Thanks for paying with CHNCC2.

  2. Beautiful card. Love your design and the image you have used. Thank you for joining us at Holly Jolly this week. Judy DT

  3. This is super cute and very festive. Cute image and I like the sentiment. Love the way you have glittered around the paper and sentiment. Nothing like some sparkle to glam it up. Me, I love anything with sparkle, glitter and Frantage!

  4. Marie, this is beautiful! I love that music background stamp! Thanks for joining us this month at the 12 Months of Christmas Link Up. Julie, DT

  5. Hi Marie, I saw your card on 12 Months of Christmas Link-up and just had to drag myself over to say just how beautiful your card is, I couldn't believe that your background wasn't a real and aged piece of musical score collected and re-used, lovely sparkly background creation and the angelic caroller is wonderful too...have a great week...Megan
