Guess The Christmas Carol!

This week only---- on the Great Impressions Blog  we are making Christmas cards that are inspired by a Christmas Carol...and you have to guess what it is!  Since I am last in line for the song week, you only have today to leave me a comment with your guess on the Challenge Blog if you want to get a chance to win a prize.  Now, I can be pretty bad about guessing this sort of thing, so I will leave a BIG hint somewhere in this post!

I used this festive DP from Echo Park-I LOVE plaid and in red and green-oh so yummy! I used this cute, cute, cute Merry Reindeer stamp. I stamped Rudolph once and then stamped and colored again. I cut out Rudy and added him on dimensionals.  I think you can see that in the bottom picture.

I cut out the icicle border with my Silhouette and covered it with glitter for a sparkly touch as well. I finished it off with some pretty  ribbon and Silhouette cut snowflakes and the Merry Christmas sentiment.  
Jenny said it best so I here is her description of all the shenanigans we have going on over at the Great Impressions Blog!

What a great card! I love it all! I think the song may be "Have A Merry Little Christmas" - maybe not. :<) Wishing you a happy day!
