Christmas 2013 - Cards # 6 (and 7)

A while ago I was invited by Hazel to join Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra with the card I submitted to another challenge.
Delighted for the invitation, I decided to make a new Christmas card and, inspired by this week theme at the ABC Christmas Challenge, I made this card:

A few days before Christmas I discovered this stamp by Tina Wenke available from Stampavie and I struggled to find a seller who could send it to Italy without spending a fortune. It took a while to arrive but I love it and this was the perfect occasion to use it!
You know my love for carolers and these little critters make no exception!
I mounted them on a white card using cardstocks I found in a magazine and a lovely ribbon.

Oh... they are so cute!

This card is for the following Challenges:
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra: Anything Goes
ABC Christmas Challenge: E for Eyes Down for a Game of Bingo (Not a Square-Pearls-Ribbon)
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Challenge # 6: Use Patterned Papers

286 days to Christmas and two more cards are ready!
(Well, yes... I loved these critters so much that I made two copies!!!)
