Merry Monday #143 Challenge

Hey There!
I am so excited to be entering a card in again for another really fun Merry Monday Challenge.
When I first saw the theme for this weeks challenge, I regretted using the image that I had for Merry Monday #141, but I came across a stamp in my collection that worked equally as well.  If you are coming to my blog either from the challenge page or elsewhere please show me some love in the comment section.  I would love to hear what you think of the card.

Here is the photo for the theme for the challenge. 


I am going to do just this!

I decided to attempt to encompass both parts of the challenge, create a card with a music theme and Christmas carollers.
In the past I have been known to go a little crazy with my cards, however for this week I really wanted to keep the card simple, clean and wanted the image to be the focal point because its so stinken cute.

Here it is...
The image itself...


Here's a side view of the card to show the dimensions...


And finally...Here is the front of the card...


I will do my best to link to all the supplies that I used for this card, however not all products may be still available as they are from my stash, and some the source is unknown.

Letraset Promarkers - used for colouring the image
Music note paper - Recollection (Michaels Brand) - 99517
Red Paper - from my scraps of paper
Clear Glitter - on the penguin's hats and the snow on the ground.
Peel Off Stickers - for the words "Merry Christmas"
Bakers Twine - used for the bow around the image
Die Cut - used for cutting out the image, and its surrounding shape
Rubber Cement - used to aid in the background technique
Distress Ink - used to colour the background of the image'

    1. Thanks Sue. I used a penguin on my card for this weeks challenge too. It's only a coincidence that it worked out that way.
