52 CCT Theme Challenge

This week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown we have a theme challenge for you. Our hostess Gill has chosen the theme of Silent Night. I'm sure that we will see some amazing interpretations of this wonderful festive theme!


I've gone with quite a literal take! The Silent Night music and sentiment are both digis from Kim MacFarlane. I have combined them with Primrose Petal stars, stamped with the Many Merry Stars set and then clear embossed. The scroll work in Chocolate Chip was cut using the Sissix Winter Greenery die and I've added a few extra stars punched from scrap dsp and Glimmer Paper. Happy Crafting! April x

I'm also entering my card into Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge which this week has the theme of singing and Crafty Hazelnut's Challenge Extra for March.


  1. I love your music background and the pretty stars

  2. Brilliant! I had initially thought of this - I really like the musical score background and the sentiment on the tag too. And the sprinkling of stars is so pretty. xx

  3. I love the musical background and all those different stars - lovely! Great sentiment tag too. Hugs, Gill xx

  4. quel charme April, cette chanson me trotte dans la tĂȘte maintenant, biz

  5. The musical score background is terrific paired with the pretty color scheme you've chosen. Nicely done, April!

  6. Great idea to use the sheet music for the background. Chocolate Chip and Primrose Petals work so well together, I am tempted to try this combination soon. Lovely, elegant card.
