Christmas Carolers Vintage Card

Hello again,
I have been able to put some time in making cards and I made another batch of Christmas cards. I used a stamp from Peddler's Pack and a sentiment from My Sentiments Exactly. I varied the cards slightly by using different ink colors and DP. I made 12 of these to go in my send out box. And, this will also be the card we will make at Card Ministry next week. Here is the brown card.

The DP is from My Mind's Eye. Ink is Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up and Bamboo Leaves from Memento. Distress ink: Vintage Photo from Ranger.

And, here is the blue/grey version:

This DP is also from My Mind's Eye. I stamped the main image with black ink and the sentiment with Basic Gray from SU. Here area a few close ups.
