This is my card for the release of the set “Musical Holiday” by Mark’s Finest Papers.

http://www.marksfinestpapers.com/servlet/the-2033/*Musical-Holiday-Stamp-Set/Detail
I found the most wonderful orange and rust Christmas paper and I thought it would look fabulous with this set.
I used the music sheet from the set and stamped on the orange cs in a darker orange color, then I stamped on my sentiments in Pallete Noir.
I cut out the music sheet and popped it onto the orange Christmas dp.
I punched some snowflakes out of the rust cs and added some matching half pearls.
These were spread here and there on the card.
The ribbon was white and I died it with a rust colored marker.

To finish I tied a pretty bow with a brass wreath attached and a cute little reindeer button on the music sheet.
