CHNC challenge 47: music

Tonight I made a card for the first time this week. At the beginning of the week I managed to finish the scrapbook for mum's birthday, but since then haven't been able to do any crafting because of the decorating being done.

I nearly delayed making a card for my CHNC challenge 47 (this will go live at 09:00 UK time tomorrow morning), but in the end I managed to get one done. Christmas is really creeping up on us fast now, so, if you haven't done so already, now is the time to get serious with making those cards, so why not join in my challenge? This week I'm asking you to make a card with a musical theme - the interpretation of this is up to you, so I think it gives quite a lot of leeway.

For my card I used some music background paper from the My Mind's Eye Christmas glitter book (I love these papers) - it has part of the 'figgy pudding' song on it, so I thought it appropriate to use a die cut glittered and foiled Christmas pudding with holly on top. The foiled spots on the pudding look black in the photo, but they are, in fact, gold foiled.

The wide wired ribbon is some that I've had for some time. It is semi-transparent and sparkly. The sentiment is a left over from a kit I had two or three years ago.

I'm also entering this for the following challenges:
