Reindeer Games

Hi. Happy Hump Day! Today's card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC22)
at www.priscillastyles.blogspot.com. I have to tell you I have worked on this card for two days.
I have changed out the papers and changed the color of the grunge reindeer more times than I can count. Has this ever happened to you? I finally went to bed and left it on the table, and took a fresh look today. The papers are Me and My Big Ideas, and I ran them through the swirl cuddle bug embossing folder. The reindeer is a grunge cutout from a seasonal package from Ranger. I cut the scallop ovals from a Nestibilities die. The snowflakes are punches. The large snowflake is a cuddlebug embossing die and matching folder. I ran cardstock and a piece of organza through at the same time. The inside oval was outlined with Snow Writers and I added white glitter. All layers a popped up with dimensionals. Gold shiny ribbon added. Gotta run, I'm going to stamp club tonight. Have a great rest of the day. Thanks for stopping by. Until tomorrow..............
