This is for today's sketch challenge; for some reason I got it in my head that I wanted to do a soft, pastel Christmas card. I love this reindeer and it seemed to be the perfect image to use. He is watercolored. The background panel is heat embossed with white ep for the holly and clear ep and pink ink for the holly berries. The card is spritzed with Shimmer Mist although you can't see it in the picture.
I had the whole card assembled when I realized that I had not cut the corners off of the image panel. As the Stickles were already on and wet, I had to trim the corners with the panel overhanging the blue card base. That is what I get for hurrying!

Isn't that the way things work out? I LOVE the final outcome of your layering, tho, especially how the top two panels overlap the bottom two. Sweet as can be - both the coloring and cardstocks. The image is darling, but it is your coloring and shading which make him adorable. TFS
