Hi, There
I had this image already colored and ready to go so I spent more time on the design and happy with the results.  So without further chatter - all though it is cold here so I think that is my teeth chattering ;)   Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are warm and cozy and sipping some hot cocoa!  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

I would like to enter  this card for the following three challenges:

Mos Digital Challenge #160 - "C is for - " - easy peasy since I used their image Victoria Caroling
Hooked on Craft Challenge #26 - Christmas - No Red/Green - This works since I had already colored this in blues, burgundy and tan

CLP's SKETCH #53  - this is the last sketch for 2012  so this is open for the Month of November -  a great bit of inspiration check out their site!

  1. This is just a beautiful card! Your coloring & layout both compliment each other perfectly. I love the glitter on her little muff too! You haven't missed a thing in making this just gorgeous!

  2. Love this! Really love the way the blue paper is torn to expose the music paper. Hope you don't mind if I borrow that idea sometime. Gorgeous card!
