Christmas Card Club challenge #21 - Carol Singers

Hi Everyone,
Happy Saturday to you all!
The weeks are flying by and it is already time for another of our friendly Christmas Card Challenges. This time it was Sue's turn to choose a theme and she came up with a cracker this time of ' Carol Singers'. I was certain I had a stamp for this, now the only thing was to find it. After a long search I concluded that I must have dreamt it, ( note to self - TIDY UP MY ROOM , lol ) I had however this digital image from Doodle Pantry called ' Winter Song Birdies' and thought this was close enough to carol singers.

Absolutely darling carol birdies. (I came close to using a bird couple too..but went with penguins when my 1st idea wasn't working). Of course I adore birds, and your image is so sweet, beautifully colored too. The die mats are so pretty with the songbirds and the filigree corners certainly dress it up so well. Love the matting layers and all the fancy shapes & colors. A wonderful way to meet this fun challenge theme. TFS & Hugs
