Sing a Song of Christmas

This card came out just like I saw it in my head.
That always makes me happy.

The background paper is digital. The bottom layer is a soft image
of a village in the snow. Over that is a transparent image of Christmas
sheet music. The background has been distressed with red, green and brown chalks and
Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The sleigh is a new Christmas digi by
This has also been colored with with red and green chalks then
distressed with brown chalk and Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I like the messy look when I use chalks. I don't even try to
stay within the lines. Flowers, berries and branches complete the card.
