Christmas carolers

I am so behind on Christmas cards, but I finally found time to make one. This one features an image of little carolers, which I decided to pair with a  sentiment "spirit of Christmas."  It just seemed a good match. That white strip down the middle is stamped with a sheet music stamp, but I covered up most of it along the way (not good planning).
I went with a very non-traditional Christmas color scheme here, as well, with purple and a bit of tan and gray.  The colors were inspired by the purple challenge mood board from Victorine Original stamps, specifically the coffee photo.

This card is for these challenges:
Catch the Bug -- Stella sketch #513
Victorine Original Stamps #8 - purple
ABC Christmas -- P is for People
Winter Wonderland -- use ribbon
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge #346-- anything Christmas
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra -- anything Christmas
Word Art Wednesday #294 -- anything goes
