A Touch of Gold for Christmas

     Today, for the new challenge starting over at QKR Stampede, we have our usual "Anything Goes" theme but also an optional theme of "A Touch of Gold."  I wanted to use this fun and funny "Reindeer (24343)" from QKR Stampede.

     I used my ProMarkers to color the image, then added a bit of gold paint pen to the ornament caps and hanging loops.  I used a stitched square die from Lawn Fawn to cut the image and I inked the edges with gold marker.

     The gold, metallic, ribbon with red and green edges has been in my Christmas stash for quite a while but it worked so perfectly for the "gold" theme that I took the time to dig it out and use it.  I tied a triple loop bow with that ribbon.

     The sentiment was printed with a computer font, hand-cut, and layered onto the card front.
