Inspiration Journal's December Challenge - Sing, Sing it Loud!

It's December!! Wow, where has the year gone? It feels like time flies faster and faster each year. I just love this time of year though and Christmas crafting! To kick it off I've created a card for our December challenge – Sing, Sing it Loud! Projects should somehow incorporate music. I love Christmas carols, especially the old favorites that tell us about the point of it all, the birth of Jesus. So away in a manger we go…

The background is covered with Texture Paste stars that I dabbed with Tarnished Brass Distress Stain and then lightly misted. On the front piece I used faux batik, one of those oldies but goodies techniques. I stamped the manger scene over the batik using archival ink but it still resists a bit – I like the effect.

Be sure to cruise on over to Inspiration Journal and check out all the inspiration from the rest of the DT! Join in our challenge and you will have a chance to win $50 to spend at Inspiration Emporium.

I am also going to enter this into the Craft Hoarders Anonymous challenge Celebrate the Season. I am surely a hoarder of all crafty Christmas things. Who can pass up those post Christmas clearance sales? I'll tell you a secret - I've been saving the scrap of wrapping paper I used as the background for years!

Most of the supplies I used for this card can be found at Inspiration Emporium. Follow the links below and use my code JUICE to save 10% if you go shopping. I will also point out that US shipping is always $5 and international shipping is just $10. ;-)
