After yesterday's wild card, I thought I'd tone it way down today! The sweet reindeer is from Santa's Helper -- so adorable! I stamped him three times and popped up his face and arms once and then just his nose again. Layering the image allowed me to reposition his left arm to better "hold" the sentiment panel. The sentiment is from Bright Spirits and is stamped onto a Vintage Oval diecut. The snowflakes are from Christmas in the Air, and have been colored with Copics and die-cut with the Frosty Snowflakes Die Set. I also dotted on some glitter and added red buttons to the centers for some extra zip. Those same snowflakes images are stamped onto the Kraft card base in a mix of white craft ink and VersaMark ink. Other details include some black glaze on the eyes and a teeny rhinestone in the center of the poinsettia on his hat.





Enjoy the hop, and hope to see you tonight!
