Reindeer Christmas

     It's late in the day for me to be posting but Beccy (Beccy's Place 30 days of Holiday) tossed us a curve today and slipped in one of the non-alphabet themes so my planned post for the letter "G" will wait until tomorrow and I'll share this one for the BINGO theme instead.  The image is from her Dasher and Dancer set, but I don't know which one this is.  :-D


I was inspired by the sketch at Stella Says Sketch.


     I used the middle, vertical column on the BINGO board: Emboss, Add Ribbon, & Pencil or Markers.

     I colored the reindeer with my ProMarkers, added a bit of red glitter to his jingle bell collar, and die cut him with a stitched, Lawn Fawn, square die.  The sentiment came from the same set and I printed it and then fussy cut it.

     The embossed background was done with a folder by Sizzix.  I added two strips of ribbon (one kraft, one red) and one of the tiny bows I make by the dozens and then toss in my stash for future use.  It was white but I used my ProMarkers to 'dye' it red.

I'm sorry for the curve ball NC, but you sure did rise to the challenge! Your card looks wonderful with the embossed background and pretty ribbon bow. I like the two lengths of grosgrain you used, brown and red is a fabulous colour combo. Great job!
Cheers,
Beccy
P.S. There are a few more curve balls coming your way before the end of the month!

This is fabulous and came up trumps with this following the curve you were thrown today. Love this cute reindeer and snowflake embossed background.

critters are always taken by surprise when their owners place reindeer antlers on their head, his expression is priceless (I say this because my daughter did that to her dog and it is such a funny picture!) Awesome design for the color challenge! Thank you for playing along with us this week at Merry Monday!
