Let It Snow!

Hi All!  I hope you've been enjoying the sneak peaks of the new Lil Christmas release over at Tickled Pink Stamps- I've sure been having fun playing with these lil Pinkette cuties :)  Today I've got our songbird Faith to show you.  A little bit ago I shared how I used to be a singer and was excited to partake in a challenge where we were supposed to use sheet music on our card...I've been waiting to pull that little trick out of my hat again and this stamp seemed the perfect one to do that with considering she's caroling :)  I went with a sort of snowflake theme based on the Bo Bunny papers I had and so it seemed fitting to showcase the sheet music for a Christmas favorite of mine "Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow".  Now when I went to put the card together I realized that I'd probably have to crop Faith down to get the right balance in my layout, not something I'd been anticipating when I started (its crazy how ideas change in the midst of creating huh?) so I'd already colored the full image up and taken a picture of it so you can see that below.  I hope you enjoy and don't hate me too much if you walk away from this post with a Christmas song stuck in your head in September :)  Please drop in to the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to check out the rest of the stunning projects by my fellow DT'ers and don't forget to leave a comment there for a chance to win this little songbird!
