Deer Friends and chocolate! Yum!

I really like the sketch challenge Rox posted on SCS today, and I really like the card I came up with. Yes, my arm hurts from patting myself on the back. lol But I do like it, and I don't always like what I come up with.

For this card I started by coloring the reindeer image with markers to get the brown deer and the red sentiment. Want to know what really happened from there? Well, I thought the red nose would look great covered with red glitter. I added the red glitter, but it didn't look good because the white showed through, so I scraped the glitter off and colored the nose with my red marker, added glue and the red glitter again. Now that looked way better. I punched that out with my circle punch. I wanted a snowflake behind that image, so I stamped the snowflake from Snowflake Spot with white craft ink onto real red cs and embossed it with white embossing powder. Oh yeah, I liked that too. I punched it out with the scallop circle punch. I colored the sentiment stamp with markers too, so that Christmas would stand out. I added a bit of ribbon and a chocolate chip mat, and there ya go. Oh yeah, I did run the card base through my cuttlebug using the snowflake embossing folder. I hope you like it too! Now, let's go eat some chocolate! Dove dark chocolate for me. It's medicinal, you know! wink wink wink

Oh Karen! This is fabulous! There are so many interesting things to look at. I love all the texture that the ribbon and the cuttlebugging gives! Well done my friend! I'll pat you on the back as well. Now, where's my chocolate?
