Carol Singers

Another fortnight has flown past
and time again for the Christmas Card Club .
The theme was chosen by Sue P. and is
Carol Singers.
Was really pleased when I saw this choice
as I have had this decoupage set in my stash for yrs.
No make on the sheet just says Line 501 which doesn't offer any clues.
I matted green mirror card to the base card.
The Tonic die cut is from their Chic Set.
I love the cut out fret work design.
All those little cut outs though  are safely stored
 in a pot to use at a later date.
You didn't think I was going to throw them did you!!
I used red card stock to match the decoupage colour.

A side view image to show the decoupage layers
set up on 3d  sticky pads on each tier.
Lightly coated with glitter in the same  colours
 to match their outfits.
Sentiment is by Britannia Word dies
and cut in the green mirror card.
Gem and pearls from my stash.
Entering into the following challenges:
