The Holly & the Ivy?

Take 2

I hope I've got this right this time.

Rainbow Lady's Challenge 81 is to use a Christmas Carol as the theme and also use a black card base.
Lorraine says it also fits in with
Digital Tuesday's challenge - a Christmas Song...thanks Lorraine :-)
Crafty Catz is a colour challenge - red, green and silver
My Time to Craft is Christmas Foliage
The Pink Elephant - favourite Christmas colour combo

There is plenty of holly on this and I found the score and lyrics for carol but the ivy is very well hidden :-)

The image and BP is from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Christmas CD.
The lovely wide ribbon is from our new QD store, 70p for 'quite a lot'.
I made an oval frame for the image and cut around it with deckle scissors.
I then made a mat slightly larger in silver mirri card, and fixed it with foam tape and some tiny silver peel-offs around edge the BP
The greeting is from one of Jak's freebies, also fixed with foam tape.

Hi Irene, I haven't been able to sit at the computer very much for the last couple of weeks because of my back but I've just had a lovely time catching up with your blog and lovely cards. I do hope your neighbour is okay now, it must have been quite a shock for you all.
