Season's Greetings

Good morning friends~  I'm going vintage today and playing along with this week's Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.  Their theme this week is:
Red, White and Grey. 

I started by stamping grey stripes down the left side of the card base and heat embossed the sentiment in gold.  The music sheet is printed off my home printer and then I used WPlus 9's Merry & Bright for the candle centerpiece.  I did veer a little from the colors by adding green to the leaves.  The candle is covered in Wink of Stella.

I'll also be adding this card to the following challenges:
Double D's Challenges ~ Traditional Christmas Colors
The Crop Stop ~ Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
