Hark The Herald Angles Sing

I decided to be a few mini masterpieces from Lili of the valley, the one on my card is design sheet 20, featuring a lovely group of carol signers. I do have the stamp of this ,but it takes ages to colour and for a sheet of 7 images varying in size for £1 it's a quick and cheep way of making quality cards.
My papers are docraft vintage . The papers have been given the distress ink treatment with brushed corduroy and then stamped with lili of the valley grunge corners in brown memento ink. The sentiment is from crafters companion, adorable Christmas set.
The ribbon is from the ribbon box and the holly wreath topper from docraft. Three red gems complete the look.

Hope you are still singing Jane! so sorry of hear you didn't get the job, what a shame and certainly their loss as you are such a talented lady. Don't worry one door closes so another can open:) I love your gorgeous card. I think I might have to invest a few pounds into these lovely images.

What a lovely card! Your papers are just gorgeous, they have a wonderful vintage feel! I agree with you about the stamp, too, it's lovely but it does take an age to colour!

Have a great weekend!
