Sketch Challenge with Contempo Christmas...
I enjoyed using a sketch to create this card. The idea for this card started with the Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set. I wanted to use the penguin, but after spotting some Baja Breeze paper with glittery red dots in the Candy Cane Christmas dsp pack, I chose the reindeer so I could add a shiny red nose to go along with all the other dots on this card. (A little FYI here - did you know you can color Stampin' Up!'s rhinestone jewels with Sharpies? I'd suggest not coloring it when the rhinestone is on your card.)
The tree is from Contempo Christmas, stamped with all three colors on this card - Baja Breeze, Real Red and Crumb Cake. The greeting is from Curly Cute. I used several punches - the 1" and 1-1/4" circles for the reindeer layers, and the Scallop Edge Border Punch in Crumb Cake.
