Christmas Carolers

This one was a bit of a struggle - who knew  this simple card could be so difficult! I had at first envisioned this as an elgant card but as I went on it became more and more rugged  due to several (or more) mishaps. I finally gave in and gave it the distressed look it seemed so determined to have.     I have entered the card into the following challenges:
1. Marks's Finest Paper (Speedy the Cats Friends Challenge #28: Piercing

2. Winter Wonderland: Sing a Christmas Song

3. Crafty Cardmakers challenge #33: Stitching real or faux

Stamp: SU  Christmas Carolers
Ribbon: from Michaels
Paper: SU Chocolate Chip, Basic Black, Whisper  White
Ink: chocolate chip
Other: Sakura gelly roll pen, Opal glitter glue, piercing tool
