deck the halls

Edited: On Sunday. I wasn't happy with the card below -so I added 2 loops of red ribbon. This is to tie in the holly berries and fill in the empty space. See the after card.

AFTER:
Created this card using the sketch at Allsorts.
Since my card was not a square - I was able to get two rows of 3 instead of 3 rows of 3.
I ran the squares through the Allegra Music embossing folder to mimic music sheet to go with the song "deck the halls with boughs of holly".
I punched the branches using the Martha Stewart punch to make a little gathering of holly. And added a few near the sentiment. I computer generated the text and use SU punches to mount it on foam tape.

A very different take on the sketch, love the very different feel you've captured for a christmas card. The embossed squares are so cool.
