Joyous Hymn

Good morning! Check out the sweet little faces on these Joyous Hymn hedgies...oh my GOODNESS! I just want to hug them!!



The main image is up on foam tape and I added some Gold Stickles to the light rays around the lantern to go with the gold cord bow. I stamped an extra image, cut out the song book and mittens, and popped those up on another layer of foam tape. See that wide green striped ribbon....something I've been ooohing and aaahing over after seeing it on so many blogs recently...finally bought me some! Yay! The MME Merry Days of Christmas DP, Prism Blush Red Dark CS, and Poinsettia Dew Droplets are also available at Stamper's Dream.

The layout of my card is Beate's Weekend Sketch 97.



Here's the inside where I used a sentiment and image from my JustRite Merry Little Christmas set. The circle with the candles is also up on foam tape:
