I picked an older carol from my past. I have a thing for beautiful songs of old and this song was based on a poem by the famous poet Longfellow...



It was my first time doing a dry/heat embossing on the background. So the gold embossing powder went where it wasn't suppose to but I still like it so I used it. I designed the bells digital stamp and used my colored pencils to shade them. 

The inside of the card reads...
I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

                                                                                                                                                             (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882), 1867)
