Mo Manning's More

Ever since Mo brought out this fabulous image, More, I'm sure inspired by Oliver Twist, I've wanted to use him on a Christmas card.  I couldn't think quite how to use him then thought of the Christmas  carol We Wish You a Merry Christmas with the figgy pudding verse! So I printed it out and then used some music paper from a My Mind's Eye pad, and discovered that this music was the very carol!! 
I singed the edges of the carol verses to add a bit of age - always a gambol in papercrafting room, don't you think!
I then stamped out this Christmas Pudding recipe from Lili of the Valley which can be removed for anyone of a mind to make their own pudding!  You might be swayed by the doleful look on this little guy's face and feel the urge to go bake! 
I've used a Memory Box score and cleft die, to highlight the musical background, the poinsettia is cut with a Marianne die and the little holly corner is a Cheery Lynn  die.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland - Food Glorious Food ( appropriate given my little Oliver Twist!)
Crafty Creations - Christmas is Coming
My Mum's Craft Shop - Song Inspiration - We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Had I been born with the Baking Urge Gene, this delightful card with the doleful little guy holding out his bowl would definitely have triggered a kitchen frenzy. Sadly, this gene skipped a generation in my family but as a happy card crafter, I admire your inspiration in creating this beauty and I love all of your fab design elements! Hugs, Lesley
