Sleigh Ride

     This is my second post today and there will be a total of 4!  Be sure to check them all.  :-D

     OMGoodness, it's the 1st of November and we have only two months left in the year!  How did that happen?  It seems only yesterday I was groaning about not having my Valentine cards done.

     In any case, it IS November and we have a new challenge starting at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.   As always, our theme is "Anything Goes with a Critter."  The sponsor is Sparkle N Sprinkle and I have used a wonderful image called "Sleigh Ride."


     For this card, I started with a blank piece of white CS and I colored the sky with ProMarkers.  I printed the sleigh, the sentiment, and two small snowflakes in the sky area right onto the colored background.  After it was printed, I colored the snow on the ground, and cut the image with a simple square die from QuicKutz.

     I matted the image piece with a piece of aquamarine CS, and put that onto a white card base.  I added the horizontal wrap of blue ribbon and tied a double layer bow with the sheer ribbon which already had the glittery circles on it.

     Challenges:

     I hope we see you playing in our challenge this month.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
