Christmas in July ...

Do you ever finish a card and think, "Wow, this one turned out really good."  Well, when I taped my last piece down, I knew this was a keeper.  I fell in love with this cute little reindeer and how he came together on this Christmas in July card.  
Stamps:  Santa's Helper - Verve
Paper:  Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green
DSP:  Be Of Good Cheer
Ink:  Memento Black, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Soft Suede
Accessories:  blender pen, corner rounder, mini brad, sponge dauber, dimensionals, Nestabilities circle dies, CB snowflake embossing folder
All supplies are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.

This card was done for two challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers.  I used the color challenge (CC384) ... Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green and the sketch (SC394).  
I bought this stamp set just for the reindeer.  When I first saw him, I knew I had to have it!  I think he colored up very nicely with my blender pen and ink pads.  I added a mini brad to the flower on his hat for so umph.  This was a fun sketch to work with.  

Thanks for stopping by and as always ...

Have a great day,

Fun sketch for this little reindeer. Great paper and a cute, cute card. I can see why you are so pleased with it. That's always a good feeling.

I'm getting a few Christmas cards made...don't want to get in a panic toward Christmas.
