Jingle Belles #5

Hello everyone. Wow, Monday sure rolls around fast!

We are all in cyclone preparations here in Townsville - there is a big one heading our way. It should hit on Thursday (unless is changes course), so things could get interesting :)

I made a card for the Jingle Belles challenge #5. This challenge is to use this sweet sketch from Amy.
It's a simple sketch, so I thought it would be perfect to make a card for my little niece.


The cloud paper is from A Muse and the sentiment is Hero Arts. I used my long neglected silhouette to cut out the deer. I inked around his edges with Walnut Stain distress ink, added a goggly eye, a red nose and some white spots. There is glitter along the edges of the hills, but it did not photograph very well.

Enjoy the start of your working week :)

My silhouette is neglected too ... this makes me want to plug it in and cut out lots of cute little deer ... the white accents are the perfect touch ... an adorable little holiday scene ... thanks for joining our jingle belles journey.
