Reindeer Fun

Morning Everyone, 

Hope you are all well. 

Sorry I have not been around in blog land much again this week, I am still getting over the cold that I had last week and I started my new job on Tuesday so trying to get into the swing of work, crafting and blogging is going to take some getting used to. 

Anyway today is a start of a new challenge over at Patties Creations this weeks theme is "Animals" so a nice easy one for us this week. Don't forget Pattie has a sale on her ETSY shop, she has a whopping 40% off the code you need is COUPON CODE PATTIEBOOP1

So onto this weeks card. 

I have used Patties "Holiday Reindeer"   to create this card. 
The card shape is a center stepper card, I love making this shape, but I need to remember to make it more often!

I matted my backing paper onto dark green card. The reindeer is cut using the opulent oval dies from spellbinders - can you tell I love this die set. 
To finish the card I added two sprigs of leaves with bows, ribbon that has "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year" stitched into it, added a bow using the same ribbon and added three card candi pieces to each side. I added glossy accents to the nose of the reindeer and to his eyes.  The image is coloured using my promarker pens

The challenges I am entering this into are:-
Divas by Design - Anything Goes -  25/09
I love Promarkers  - Anything Goes - 25/09 
Creative Card Crew - Christmas - 24/09

Thanks for stopping bye and I hope to see you again soon.

Kelly, I typed a comment and lost it so if you have two, I apologize. Wonderful card and I think it is great we both used the same image. You card shape is wonderful (I can't seem to do that one very well), and your coloring and papers are perfect! Well done. Hugz!

Kelly - what a great step card! I keep forgetting to make cards like these too, and they are fairly easy to do, and they make an impression on the person you are giving it to. I love how you colored the reindeer. Sandi ♥
