Joyeux Noel

I am busy packaging up my holiday packages and could use a few more holiday cards to send out.  I used the Mojo Monday Sketch #270 as my layout. 

I saw the hearts in the sketch and thought stars...
 I found an old church hymn book at my local library used book stores. I was thrilled as I knew I would find so many wonderful sheets of music.  I used that to die cut my stars, punch my border and stamp my vintage Santa on.  I added a background panel embossed using a new embossing folder. The sentiment and image are from Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods.

The sketch:

Hope your Thursday is great! I am looking forward to Friday as I have taken the day off and doing a little Christmas shopping.

What a lovely find that old hymn book was because your stars and stamped images look lovely. That embossing folder is beautiful and the whole vintage look is gorgeous Sue.

Enjoy your shopping day. I had one of those last Monday but it didn't half give me a bad backache carrying all the bags, lol!
