BC130 - Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer





Happy Friday! - Yes I'm actually participating in today's Blogger Challenge. I've skipped a few of the challenges this month due to just not having enough time to fit everything in that needs to be done before Christmas. Since I needed a card to send to my daughter I decided this weeks sketch challenge would fill that need quite nicely. I have of course "flipped" the sketch so that I could use the adorable deer image from The Greeting Farm (Forest Friends) stamp set.
Coleen (my granddaughter) just loves singing Rudloph The Red Nosed Reindeer so I decided to make this little guy into (Rudolph). The image was colored with Prisma Colored Pencils and blended with Gamsol. I added a Chili Sprinkle for his red nose.
Stamps: Greeting Farm
Sentiment: SU
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Prisma Color Pencils
Card Stock : Old Olive, Ruby Red, Bashful Blue and Whisper White. DP from Basic Grey-Eskimo Kisses

Other: Snowflake Embossing Folder, White Craft Pad, Snowflake Brad (Making Memories) Glitter, Olive Sprinkles (Annabelle Stamps)

Don't forget to check out all the BC members blogs (click on the icon on my sidebar) and leave them some comment lovin' - It's the holidays so give them some good cheer!

Till next time...Hope you have all your shopping completed. I still have shopping left to do, maybe a little baking and of course wrapping all the gifts. Whew...the holidays wear me out, but I love it!

What I can see of the card is very pretty. Your image of the sketch is overlapping the card image, so you can't see it. Post us a note again when you fix it and I'll stop back.
