Just Us Girls #10 sketch challenge

They have a sketch challenge over at the Just Us Girls blog this week and it's a fun one! It was easy enough for me to make another last-minute Christmas card. I love it when things come together quickly, especially when there's SOOoo much to do this time of the year!
I started with the image from Many Merry Messages and stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black on wc paper, and embossed it with clear ep. I colored the images with Tombows and added red stickles to the gigantic nose of the reindeer in the center. The DP was a well-loved scrap (mfr unknown) that I've had forever. I layered the image on a panel of scrap green cardstock using Labels four Nestabilities. The brads were pink, but I made them red by dipping in Versamark and then red ep and heating them (twice). I wonder why I'm unable to find Red or White brads or eyelets anywhere? It seems I always have to buy assorted packs just to get a few red or white ones. Anyway, the flowers are from Making Memories and the ferns were made with a MS punch. Ribbons were from my stash. I'm already tired of making Christmas cards and hopefully I'm just about finished with them now. Soon I'll have to start baking, but I always do that last. If I bake cookies too soon, there are none left by Christmas!! LOL!!!
Have a wonderful Sunday whatever you're doing and TC!
