Hark the herald angels sing

This card is based on the sketch given for Christmas card challenges week 46:

I printed out the sheet music in dark brown on a piece of beige card and distressed with brushed corduroy distress inks with an inkylicious brush. The scalloped strip is from my offcuts. The oval picture of angels is from a kit and I edged it with a brown copic pen.

This is for Lizzie's 'musical theme' challenge for the Christmas Card Club for tomorrow morning (yes, I'm actually a bit early rather than late!).
