Second card for CHNC challenge 193

'Do you hear what I hear?' - That's the question I'd like answered this week for my CHNC challenge 193 - You might show a picture of a bird cheeping, bells ringing, carol singers ... or perhaps something on your card that makes a noise, like a shaker.

Like the previous one, thiscard depicts choir boys singing on their way into church, so I can hear 'Once in royal David's city' being sung. I've used card, toppers and sentiments from a Hunkydory Christmas choir set, part of their Traditional Christmas range. The background card was one piece, but I thought it was too good to fold in half, so I added each half to A5 card blank (the other card will be shown in the next post). The music strips down the side of each card were offcuts from the waste around the die cut toppers etc.
