A Christmas Song

*****************

is be inspired by a Christmas song....

.... and mine is "We wish you a Merry Christmas". 

I found a bit of information as to the origins of this popular song from a web site
The author and composer of We Wish You a Merry Christmas cannot be traced however it is believed to date back to England in the sixteenth century. The tradition of carollers being given Christmas treats for singing to wealthy members of the community is reflected in this Christmas song.

I've used one of Ann's new poinsettia images fixed on to a snowflake embossed  background with foam tape. 
This image is quite beautiful on it's own and doesn't need much extra to embellish.......therefore just a small piece of net, a seam binding bow and a tag I feel is all this needs.
 


I added some glitter to some of the petals though it is difficult to see here.


We hope you will be able to come play along with us at Crafty Ann's  and show us your Christmas song creations. If you need inspiration the DT have come up with some beauties.


I'd like to include this in  the following challenges

CRAFT #123 - bright colours
Crafty Cardmakers #53 - anything goes
Papertake Weekly - 4th birthday special - anything goes
