CHNC challenge 68: let's have a sing song

Yes, it's Saturday again and time for another challenge over on my CHNC blog - don't the weeks go by quickly?!

For today's challenge 68 I'm asking you to make a card based on a favourite Christmas song or carol - or you can incorporate music into your Christmas card - you can choose. This challenge is once again being sponsored by Bugaboo stamps who are offering $21 of digital stamps to the randomly selected winner and two of their design team have joined me this week - please do go over and visit them.

My card is for the song 'Jingle Bells' and uses 'snowman bells' and 'winter circle sentiments - jingle bells', both kindly supplied by Bugaboo Stamps which I coloured with copics. I printed out the sheet music for Jingle Bells on to an offcut of English Paper Company paper that I bought ages ago. It's difficult to see here, but the circular sentiment is mounted on to a nestie spiky die cut which has been tinged with a light grey blue copic.
