We are going to follow along the traditional "Twelve Days of Christmas" song. 
Since today is the "Twelfth Day"of our challenge event, it is the "Twelve Drummers Drumming" day, according to the classic Christmas song: Our challenge today is to be 
Inspired by a Christmas Song!  
Here's what I came up with, using this simply fantastic Angel image from Bugaboo Stamps:

This is a 5" square card. I colored the image in PSE. :0) I printed it on a Stampin' Up Naturals paper, Ivory color. The image is embellished with some 3D White Glitter Paint (found it in the JoAnn fabric section) on the clouds, and some Stickles Star Dust glitter glue on the angel wings and stars. I have taken some liberties with the original "Believe" sentiment that Jodie includes in the image from Bugaboo Stamps, and instead have added the song title, "Hark! The herald angels sing". Cute, huh?! lol! I cut a silver music sheet paper, from Cloud9 Designs, with my Nesties for the bottom dp layer. I added an embossed gold card stock (bought it that way) on top of that, some EK Success punched stars that are cut from DCWV glitter card stock, and a music sheet of the actual song, itself. (I found a copy online, shrunk it "itty-bitty" and hand cut it out after printing it).

Now, we'd love for you to join us, so go spin some old 45's, pop in a cassette of mixed Christmas songs.....turn on the Sirius XM Christmas channel.....whatever it takes to inspire you!..... and then join us!  Head over to the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog to enter your creation, and you could WIN!

Don't forget to stop back tomorrow.......we'll have a new release for you! The 50% Sale will be continuing over at the store, as well, so don't miss it!
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
