The Sounds of Christmas

This week the challenge at Cooking With Cricut is all about "The Sounds of Christmas".  I am certain my very favorite thing about this time of the year is all of the glorious music.  Noting much brightens the spirit than the sound of beautiful Christmas music.  No matter if it is sacred or secular, it is all beautiful and contagious.  Have you ever noticed how people are far more free to sing or dance this time of year.  It is the effect of all the beautiful music!!  Here is a card I made about the music at Christmas.

The card base is a forest green and the mat is a glittered striped paper from My Mind's Eye.  I embossed white card stock with the allegro embossing folder and then inked it in gold.  The bells are cut from the Quarter Note cartridge in a crimson and silver metallic.   They are embellished with pine leaves from a Martha Stewart punch.  The Silver metallic paper is from AC Specialty.  The forest green and crimson are from Recollections.  The sentiment is stamped in crimson and then inked in gold.  I cannot recall where I got the sentiment stamp.  It may have been Oriental Trading,  I have had it a good while.  But, I do think it is perfect for this card.  

Now, don't forget to visit Cooking With Cricut and see what the DT has created for you.  We would so like for you to link your project about the Sounds of Christmas to the Cooking With Cricut site.  

Enjoy the music and enjoy the holidays.  For they are truly special.
