Congratulations, Doug

Every year, I sing in the Channel 9/Vision Australia Carols by Candlelight choir on Christmas Eve.  Our conductor (AKA fearless leader), Doug Heywood, is leading us for the 25th year this year (I'm only up to 23 years!), so a few choristers, including my friends Di and Jackie, have organised a gift (a sculpture in the shape of a quaver - a musical note) to commemorate the occasion.
I made this card for the occasion - it is double the size of a standard card (A5 size) and I put pages inside so that all of this year's choristers could sign the card. 

The baubles and the letter dies are from Stampin up, and the musical background and the "congratulations" are Hero Arts. The red card is SU Real Red, and the white card is Papertrey Ink.

 As the card says, congratulations, Doug, and Merry Christmas!
