off the wall christmas

alright, i have to make this a quick post. i'm in the middle of moving to SC and there are boxes everywhere, not to mention a little one passed out on the couch. so since i have a few moments to myself, i wanted to post a card i made this weekend for the latest and greatest off the wall craftiness challenge. the colors this week were like a gold, white and brown. here's the inspiration photo and color swatch:

i'm still trying to crank out some christmas cards, so i wanted this one to be christmas themed as well! i am loving birds on a wire, and when i paired that with the musical patterend paper background, i wanted knew i wanted the sentiment to be music related. so i chose 'noel', a totally classic christmas song, in my opinon. and since the colors are also classic, i thought it was a good fit! :)

the music notes were created with a punch. and i cut one of them in half for the two single notes. the 'wire' is just some brown floss. and then i used a stamp for the bird and the sentiment, which was then distressed and then both were popped up for dimension. i also added some thin ribbed, chocolate brown ribbon at the bottom.

so that's it! sorry about the quality of the photo - i was rushed and things were being packed up behind me!! :)
hopefully things will settle down and i'll be able to get a little more scrapping done for posts! thanks again for bearing with me!
