kelly, thanks for the feedback. the scripted carol at the bottom, was purely a nostalgic reference to my childhood. my parents would pile us in the car and we would sing carols at the top of our lungs as we drove around the city looking at christmas lights and displays. jingle bells is such a well known christmas carol in the states, that my thinking was that you (as a recipient) would really only need to see a word or two of the song, to realize what is written there. a bit cheeky. works well with any well-known christmas carol.

thanks for the note jessica! to my knowledge, names were not required by the designer for this particular challenge (only photos). and while my other designs did not use names directly (thank you card challenge), they fulfilled the requirements by using a monogram.

I think it would be easy to add in the names to this design.
