"Home for the Holidays" card

I'm really enjoying making a Christmas card each week along with the jingle belles where the theme was "home for the holidays"!  This card will also be submitted to Celebrate the Occasion for this week's challenge of green, white, + another color.  I chose red!  And Christmas is my favorite 'occasion'!!

The "home for the holidays" theme gave me several ideas, but probably my favorite part of Christmas, as well as something that brings back wonderful memories of home, is the music!   We always did, and still do, go caroling to older folk, but as a child, our extended family would gather round the piano and sing all Christmas evening.  It was wonderful!!   




What I used:
~ DCWV glitter mat stack for the red and green
~ DCWV holiday stack patterned paper
~ clipart printed on my computer, cut in a 2" circle
~ 2 1/2" green circle
~ 2 3/4 red scalloped circle
~ grosgrain ribbon
~ 'Merry Christmas' stamp

Thanks for looking!!!
