Sing Joyful Tidings -- ScrapbookPal.com

For the month of December, ScrapbookPal.com sent me the Christmas Village cartridge, and what drew my eye first were the fabulous vintage caroler silhouettes! I have a secret ambition to dress up like that some day and go caroling, but don't tell my husband -- he already thinks I'm waaaay to crazy about Christmas...
I have a few vintage Christmas songbooks that I
stole inherited from my grandmother, so I scanned in "The First Noel" and printed it out to use as my background. Then I cut the caroler at 4" and adhered her to this vintage kraft tag my mom got for me at an antique fair in England -- ah, she knows me so well. It needed a little somethin', but luckily I had also received some Christmas-colored Stickles in my package, so I added a nice big wreath with just a little bit of sparkle. I distressed everything with chalk ink. So fun and festive, but still with that elegant vintage feel.
