Vintage Christmas ATC Swap

I am hosting a vintage Christmas Swap on the Cricut Message Board. Each group has two Christmas songs attached to it and the idea is to create a vintage ATC using some part of the song--title, phrase, word or a feeling or memory you have about the song. Not as easy as it sounds. This is my design for Group 3 and I used the third verse of" It Came upon a Midnight Clear." It is quite outside the box but the idea came to me immediately when I saw the picture.

This picture is from the Siege of Bastogne as part of the larger Battle of the Bulge. The siege lasted from 20 December to 27 December when the American forces were relieved by elements of General George Patton's Third Army. My father turned 21 on Christmas Day that year and celebrated by dropping supplies for Patton’s troops.
