Caroling Chicks.....

Hello everyone: I love to combine challenges every chance I have so this time I'm playing at  Mojo Monday with a really fabulous sketch by Julie Tilman , Merry Monday with the theme "Christmas Carols" picked by awesome Bonnie Klass and the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge , USE YOUR STASH challenge, Here is my card.


This adorable image is from Stamping Bella and it's called Caroling Chicks , so cute, don't you think? This was a quick image to color, I stamped it onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter, I colored the musical notes with gold gel pen, I stamped the sentiment with Coastal Cabana ink, the patter paper on the small rectangle is retired from SU, the other one with polka dots is from my stash.
I die cut a snow flake. added a Rhine Stone to the center then, I  punched a circle with silver foil paper and ran it through the big shot with the polka dot embossing folder. 
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from a set by Power Poppy called Poinsettia , gorgeous images in this set. 
The Mistletoe and little gift are from another Power Poppy set called Merry Littles , with a whole bunch of adorable Holiday little images.
This are the banners that inspired my card.


Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge
"Use your Stash" challenge.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

You are correct my friend, they are cute and I can't believe Patti is covering her ears, with you in the middle singing your little chicky heart out.
