DCM challenge - Song without words

It’s Lythan’s turn to challenge us this week from the Daring Cardmakers
and boy what a challenge!

I would like you to create a card inspired by a song or a carol - it could be for Christmas or not! (you may have got all your Christmas cards done by now...) BUT there is a twist. the words of the song are NOT to be seen on the front of the card. You could leave it to us to guess! Have fun!

Here’s my very simple card



Both papers are from the BG Fruitcake collection and I’ve used my tapestry stamps to create a border around the edge of the plain Green one and also on the Cream centre mat. The centre image is from a three panel Magenta Christmas stamp that has been embossed with Gold and painted with Twinkling H2O’s. The whole thing is edged with Gold Marker Pen.
Very easy but can you guess the Christmas Carol?

Another card I’ve made today is this one



Roberta Robo has been in action again and I’ve used yet another template by the wonderful ErikaP over on UK Scrappers.
Thanks Erika for still sharing your fantastic creations with us especially in light of what has recently gone on, it’s so very generous of you.

oh those cards are gorgeous Sue. I love the robo one - such a clever design. And is the carol on the other, rather elegant one - holly and the ivy?

~Gorgeous cards, yes, I agree with Lythan, the holly and the ivy, I was stuck at first as I couldn't make out the ivy until I had enlarged the image!
You were right on mine by the way, Diamonds are Forever, you are the only one to get it right so far, I thought it was an easy one!

I think it's the Holly and the Ivy. The robo one is stunning (I agree about Erika on UKS - very generous and talented - I've now used a few of her templates)

That Robo template looks stunning - I must go and check out Erika's work

Fabulous cards!!

Angelnorth said...

These are lovely Sue! There's no ivy that I can see so I'm going with Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly since that backing paper looks bough-ish to me! :o)
