A Favourite Christmas Carol

This week's Merry Monday challenge is Christmas Carols.  Lori wants to see what our favourite carols are.  Impossible to name just one as I love so many, but one that always makes my top list is "Joy to the World".


I'm trying to use up at least one piece from my UFO box each week.  For those who don't know what "UFO" means for cardmakers, it is an "un-finished object".  I first heard Bonnie Klass of Merry Monday use the term so very appropriate that I'm using a UFO for a Merry Monday card!

Back in December, I decided to make some smooshed Inka Gold backgrounds, not realizing how little Inka Gold you needed to use - I used so much that I ended up with many pieces, several of which ended up in UFO box as they are too lovely to toss.

I stamped my angel and sentiment in black and heat embossed with a sparkly embossing powder.  I bordered it with black and added some silver sequins and sequin stars.

Thanks for dropping by.






Supplies:
Stamps: Inkadinkado angel, PTI sentiment
Paper: mixed media, white, and black cs
Paper Size: 5.25" square
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: blue and silver Inka Gold, silver sequins and sequin stars, sparkly black embossing powder, Lil Inkers stitched square die
