Meeting A Challenge

I do enjoy 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches blogs and get lots of inspiration from their challenges and those who pick up the challenges.  Wednesday I worked on a card to meet both challenges in 1 card.


The reindeer stamped image is by Copper Leaf Creations (I could not find the stamp in their online list) and the text by The Angel Co. (closed in 2011).  I embossed both with an embossing powder called Twilight by Stampendous (which I've had for about 15 years).  52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown's  August challenge was to use glitter and bling.  I added some red bling stickers from Stampendous under the text to meet the bling part of the challenge.



The sketch came from this week's Freshly Made Sketches 151.  I used some paper scraps I had left over from a class last month.  I think they work well together.

Now, please pop over to the 2 blogs and check out the wonderful inspiration projects and the great cards made to meet the challenges.  If your mojo is on vacation these should bring it back!

I love how you've used different dsp patterns together, and your glitter embossing and festive, red bling look fab.
