Fa la la la la

 After lying on the beach in Cuba for a week I was a little slow 
getting back into my craft room - had to do laundry and yard work but 
today I get to play! And I'm starting with the challenge at Merry Monday. 
The challenge is to make a card based on a Christmas carol and after
a few different ones ran through my head I settled on Deck the Halls but
now I can't seem to get it out of my head :)

I came across this dsp while I was cleaning up my craft desk. I have no 
idea how old it is or where it came from but I knew I was going to use 
it. To make the 'jolly' more of a focal point I also die cut it out of 
fun foam. I love that stuff! I embossed the sentiment and called it
a day. Time to make some cards!

Happy Stampin'

Susan I really like how you put your card together. The dsp really was the clincher for this card. :)

Love that popped sentiment! That's one of my favorite dies, and it does really well with the foam. The background is perfect.
