Falalalala - Conquering Paper Mountain #12

Between Brusho backgrounds and 'lots of white space' , I've not been doing so well lately with reducing my paper mountain.  So here, I am trying to use up a Christmas paper pad by matting onto patterned paper and using it to paper-piece.

I know it's hard to see but I used the sketch at 52 CCT  in deciding how to stamp my carolling characters.  I think the bear is proudly singing loud and clear at the front, unaware he is drowning out his smaller companions! They are from a set by Avery Elle. The music stamp behind them is a very old one from Toybox. I sprayed the panel with green mist.

The sentiment (if you can call falalalala a sentiment!) was designed and cut on the Silhouette electronic die-cutter.

As well as 52CCT , I'd like to enter:
The Male Room music
Jingle Belles music
Crafting with Dragonflies  music

I do recognize the sketch. And there are loads of papers on here. I'm doing quite well in reducing my own paper mountain, I'n not cutting into any new papers, only using leftovers, but I too have periods now where no DPs get used. Still love them though, and this card is a perfect example of why...
