Merry Monday #231

Helllooo Friends!! I hope everyone is enjoying their day. I am preparing for my first Twenty One Pilots Concert tonight. It is a belated birthday gift for Charlotte's sixteenth birthday. I have not been to a concert in YEARS and this is probably not the band I would have chosen. However, I do like them and it will be fun to be with my husband and Charlotte.

Today I am popping in to showcase a card I created for the "Merry Monday Challenge #231."

The challenge was to create a card with a reindeer on it. I have many reindeer stamps but decided I would use one that I had from CC Designs. Isn't he cute? (it could be a girl but I think of this one as a he.)

The background was sent to me by Michele Ferguson in the Christmas Card she sent me. I had to use it on a card. I NEED to find this embossing folder because I adore it.

I layered a tag from My Minds Eye under the reindeer panel. I just received the "Merry" die by Sunny Studios and I HAD to use it on a card. I was eyeing a ton of fun cards with it over Christmas and bought it in one of my buying frenzies after the holiday. The "& bright" is an oldie but goodie from PaperTrey Ink's "Tremendous Treats" set.

It is hard to tell but the nose and the bell I layered with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle and then covered in Glossy Accents. I also added some sparkle to the antlers.

I am entering this into Darnell's NBUS Challenge #8. She had an optional use colored pencils on kraft but I have already done this technique many times.

I am also joining Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge-Anything Goes.

I thank you for stopping today. Have a FABULOUS Saturday!!
