Carol Singing

Good morning, I hope everyone is well and enjoying the new week. We have a new challenge for you at Bearly Mine Designs and this week the theme is - Anything Goes.

I have used one of my LOTV images from the Mini Masterpieces range called Carol Singing to which I added some Stickles and 3D Crystal Lacquer.

The papers are Bearly Mine Designs - Christmas Traditions and a little scrap of music paper from my stash.  I have distressed the edges of the papers and image with antique linen distress ink and stamped some foliage on the corners of the image.  The snowflake embellishment is a Whimsy die with a star shaped button in the middle and the sentiment is LOTV.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card following the same design as the front.

Card Recipe:

Image:  LOTV - Mini Masterpieces range
Papers:  Bearly Mine Designs - Christmas Traditions
Card Stock:  Dies to Die For - Kraft
Tools:  Whimsy Stamps - Winter's Jewel 1, Spellbinders - Classic Squares (inside card)
Embellishments:  button, string, Stickles, 3D Crystal Laquer, Distress Ink and paint from stash
