Merry Monday #143 : Carolers/Music + Simon Says Anything Goes

I can't believe I might get a post up before the afterschool madness starts. This is a card I made for the Merry Monday Challenge #143: Carolers/Music and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog where Anything Goes this week.

The card is miles from where I started and then required a further adjustment because of an ink smudge. The Paper Smooches "fa la la" is stamped on inked holly leaves and heat embossed white. A few extra leaves are tucked under the speech bubble panel, hopefully balancing the card out a bit as it was a little top heavy.

A scrap of Teresa Collins designer paper and a sheet music embossed panel are adhered directly to the card base.

The trio of glittery enamel dots finish the card off.

Thanks for stopping by,
