First Xmas card of the season!

Okay, a little soon to be humming carols, but I'm prepping for Christmas cards!
I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch #155 
 and some NEW schtuff, so linking to:
This latest challenge blog is the brain-child of Darnell Knauss. Incentive to shop (and use!) the stash. Plus the current theme includes Christmas cards.
I used a new paper pack from Close to My Heart, Yuletide Carol (yes!) and some Holly stickers from Paper Wishes that I've had since this time last year (bad).
 Rounded the unusual edge of the card, and tried to give the music-embossed panel and tag some vintage-ness with distress inks.
Sentiment is from Paper Smooches.
Have a good week!
