Another Digital Ink Challenge Card....

Just finishing up a few challenge cards from over at Digital Ink. This is for the Christmas Carol challenge - create a card that uses a Christmas carol. Rather than use a line or title as a sentiment, I just copied the sheet music onto a piece of parchment paper and then tore, inked, and sprayed with walnut gold glimmer mist. The image is from M & M Designs. I have never been priviliged enough to have one of these delightful coffees myself, but have seen photos of them - cream made into beautiful designs right into the coffee itself. Can't you just imagine what a treat that would be?! oh my - pure joy in a cup..... :)


The holly paper is from Anna Griffin, the crepe paper ornament is from Martha Stewart, buttons are from my vintage stash, as is the beautiful trim. I love the vintage feel this and the previous card have! but then you know me and my love of vintage cards!!!


Speaking of that, I was so sad that today was the last day of the 12 Tags of Christmas over on the blog of Tim Holtz. Please stop by if you haven't. I had never been involved with this before, and goodness gracious, this man is a genius! I am now ready to check out the archives for the past few years' articles. Don't know if I have the nerve to try any yet, but I love to gallery gaze!!! :)

I have decided to use this card for the Saturday Spotlight Challenge, too. I do love my Christmas music this time of year! :)

Beautiful card! I like how you used the music. I think you would create something amazing if you used Tim's tags as inspiration.

Well done Jennifer and that coffee does look deligtful now that you've infromed me it's not a fern leaf in it. We don't have fancy coffee like that over here - we're only just getting the hang of cappuccinos over here in England hahahaa. Anyway thanks for joining in with the fun here at DIco
