Creepmas....... In July

Well a lot of  the blog challenges seem to be centred on "Christmas in July" at the moment, I am happy to announce to all you "Alternatives" out there.......Creepmas in July is also out there. Oh happy me!!!
A good excuse to start the dreaded C card making. So out comes just one of my favourite Creepmas images from Rick St Dennis and still available in his Etsy Shop...... Fah-Lah-La- this Carolers.

I used the sketch from "Try Stampin' On Tuesday" for my inspiration to make this....

Some TH Christmas paper teamed with some music score paper in stash all matted onto pearlised bronze.
Plenty of vintage paper DI. The sentiment is stamped using individual letters onto the reverse of a scrap of the main DP.
These little fellas have been coloured using promarkers. Then masked and, using espresso ink, a treebark background stamp from the rubber set "Urban Decay" from Smeared Ink applied.
Some tiny punched snowflakes and a few gems. This is the top corner detail - gems in the shape of music notation.

I'd like to enter this card into the challenges at
