Merry Monday #80

I am still feeling the effects from a nasty cold I picked up last week, my poor husband was tapped to get the bug on Friday.  Needless to say it was pretty quiet around our place this weekend.
 
Enough of my grumbles :) it is time for a new  Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge, Lesley has posted this vintage image for inspiration for this weeks challenge.
 
 
I don't think a card can get much more simple than this. I cut out a piece of DP then added a this brown border then  I added some twine. The sentiment is heat embossed in brown and popped up with foam tape, I finished with some brown pearls.
 
I love the music in gold on the DP and this Verve sentiment ties in nicely for both music and Christmas carol.
 
 
 
Supplies: Cream and brown card stock, Designer Paper - Recollections, Verve - Peace on Earth,  twine, pearls.
Stop by Lesley's blog  and see the wonderful Design Team creations and join in the fun and play along with the challenge.
 
Cheers,
Nina
