Christmas Carolers - October New Release Blog Hop

We are still celebrating the "Joys of the Seasons", the newest release of Christmas/Halloween/Fall rubber stamps from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. The gals from both the High Hopes and OCS Design Teams are hosting another Blog Hop from the 1st to the 5th of this month and and winner/winners will be chosen on the 7th.  
                          You should have come from Carolina Blog. 

My card for this blog hop features Carolers (TT011). How cute are these two with their bird, dog and cat! The sentiment is also a High Hopes stamp called Sm. Merry Christmas (F051).

After colouring my stamp with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cutting it, I mounted it on some snowflake paper. I added a snow bank, fence and lamp post and some fun sheet music paper. The snowflake is cut out of a snowflake border die. The sentiment is stamped on a Spellbinders label with some gold leafed thread added to it. I finished off my card with my favourite - a few gumdrops, and some Star Dust Stickles to add a hint of sparkle.
