Lead the Way, Rudolph

     Well, for the last couple of weeks, I've been doing Halloween cards with an occasional Christmas card thrown in and today I have one more Christmas card to share.  This one is definitely made for a child and it features an image from Bugaboo Stamps, a fun little reindeer which I turned into Rudolph (from the Christmas song fame) with his bright, red nose.

I started with the sketch at Stella Says Sketch,
although I let the bobble head be the circle shape.  :-D

     I colored with ProMarkers, pencils, and gel ink.  I used red glitter to his nose and colored the shine of its light onto his face.  The image is cut with a stitched die from Die-namics.  The dark blue dp is from DCWV - "Winter Magic" stack.  I used embossed dp for the white strip at the bottom (and filled in the top corner, also), then added the three snowflakes with sparkly, gem centers for embellishment.

I may have to do one more for Halloween and then it's going to be strictly Christmas - and birthdays.
Love this cute one for the holidays. Rudolph never looked so good. Cute design for him too!

NanaConnie your card is adorable...who doesn't like Rudolph and he really pops out of the card with the design paper you chose for your background...fun card. I see the many projects you create in The Outlawz and feel pretty special to see you at Color Dare and hope that you will come back to future Color Dare Challenges.
