I made this card for the Holly Jolly blog challenge and the challenge is to create a Cristmas card using carolers. The only caroler image I have is from an older, 1997 retired Stampin' Up! stamp set called Song in Your heart.  My mother in law picked up this stamp set for me at a yard sale last year.

I stamped and colored the image using my Stampin' Up! markers. It took me awhile to color this image and since it ended up being a little more involved I decided to keep the rest of my card fairly simple. My crumb cake layer is embossed using my petals-a-plenty embossing folder and I used my raspberry ripple marker to color in the raised flower centers.

For embellishment I decided to tie some twine along the side of my image and since it's a caroler card I thought adding two small bells would be appropriate.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by! Make it a great day!

Love your card Patty. The colours that you have used to colour the image are great. I also love how you highlighted the centre of the flowers with a marker. Hopefully we will see you at our next challenge. Thanks for sharing with us this week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge. Regards Meighan
