time for a new prompt at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and we hope you'll think it sounds like fun: we want you to make a holiday card that incorporates music, is inspired by a holiday song, or which includes a holiday song title. here's what i made:

vintage sheet music from my stash; birch patterned giftwrap from pier 1; holly and ivy cut from an old greeting card; large velvetty flower: michaels; small florals: petaloo; dimensional sentiment: basic grey; brad: american crafts; doily die: cheery lynn designs; border punches: recollections; patterned paper scraps: echo park, basic grey, my mind's eye; ink: colorbox; adhesives: xyron, elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine

i did a little bit of all three aspects: OF COURSE i used some of my very favorite darkly patina-ed old sheet music; i've got "deck the halls" for my sentiment; and thematically, my inspiration comes from "the holly and the ivy". i've also made a round card, which was inspired by the current cardabilities sketch (#119):

and now why not head on over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and see stephanie's gorgeous card, while planning your own bid for holiday-music-related world domination!
