The Spirit of Christmas Past ~~ New Challenge at the Jingle Belles Rock!!

Oh my when I saw the challenge on Friday I was delighted and I headed to the craft room climbed up on my stool and rummaged through all my Vintage stamps, I can now make a whole week of cards!!! But I decided to start with one. Don't want you to OD on Christmas posts. My first card is with a stamp I really haven't used much, I think this is the first card I have made with the Father Christmas stamp from PSX, the company is no longer in business but can be found on ebay the number is K2045. I decided to bite the bullet and colour this with my copics (note to self ~ do not use very vanilla cardstock with copics) Of course after all my work I was determined to finish it.

The music sheet is from pinterest and I spritzed it with cranberry shimmer mist (SU) Santa's beard was painted with white liquid pearls mixed with a touch of water.

Finished the inside with a "top note" with my newest favourite sentiment.

I would like to enter this in:
