Carol Singing

This week's Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge is 'Carol Singing'.  I used an upcycled image from one of last year's Christmas cards.  The colours I have chosen also fit with this month's Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge - 'to create a card using non traditional image with traditional Christmas colours OR a card with a traditional Christmas image using non traditional colours'.  I chose the traditional image with non traditional colours - purple and cream.

I layered cream snowflake paper (a magazine freebie) onto purple pearlescent card and attached it to a square card blank.  A strip of purple snowflake paper was attached to purple card and attached to the card front.   I used Nestabilities to cut the image and a scalloped purple circle.  These were then attached to the card front.  Imperial Purple Versafine was used to stamp the Hobby Art sentiment.  To finish, I added two purple nailheads to the top right and two to the bottom left of the card.
