January Rudolph Day


It's time for the first Rudolph Day Christmas challenge this year, which runs the 25th to the end of each month. ScrappyMo has taken the challenge over this year and she requires just one Christmas card or project to play along.
My card is all SU!, including the embossed ornaments, sentiment, top note die and retired dsp cut into word window snippets to create the background. The ornaments were popped up on dimensionals and suspended with bits of twine.

I'm also entering this into the Snippets playground #161.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!
