Dashing Through

Another super duper clean and simple card for Christmas.  I really debated whether or not to add some Nuvo, sequins, or something else and the final decision was to just not add anything.  (Besides that, I figured I'd screw it up and get glue all over the place or put the Nuvo drops in crazy places  and where they didn't belong--------not that I've ever done anything like that before though........Um.......)!

The cute little reindeer and sentiment come from Clearly Besotted stamps.  The die cut frame is from My Favorite Things (peek-a-boo).  The ground 'snow' was made using a MFT stencil and I used distress ink on the sky adding the snowflakes with a white gel pen  That pretty well sums up the card.

I'd like to enter this in a couple of challenges:
Happy Little Stampers Challenge- Christmas Anything goes with a reindeer (optional)
Happy Little Stampers Challenge - Anything goes with a die cut
Die's R Us Challenge - Frame It

Thanks for stopping by..........

It doesn't need another thing! Good decision to leave it as it is, and I'm loving that die you used for the aperture. I love this little leaping reindeer and his green duds are just too cute. Great work on the falling snow as well. TFS & Hugs

Very cute card and WTG on getting some Christmas cards done early - my goal is to make 2 a month so it's a good thing there's still time left because I haven't made any yet in March. I love how you made the sky!

What a perfect CAS design Lynn, and I agree that it needs no extra adornment. I'm with you about Nuvo drops - they look wonderful but I have messed up so many cards when I've added them at the end lol!
Thanks for sharing with us at Happy Little Stampers, and I hope you will join us again soon.

No, no, I'm not ready to be doing Christmas cards yet! But I'm glad you're doing them. :-D I love the reindeer and even more, I love that die! You have to let me know who made it or where to get it.

Lynn, this card is very pretty. I love the white space (I have a hard time with that) and how the image takes the show.
