Sending Christmas Cheer

**This is my second post for today, scroll down or click here to see my card for StampNation's 3rd Birthday party!**

Hi again friends!  It is a rainy, dreary day here in Northern NH so I have been spending time in my craft room.  I used the colors from the new Card Concept challenge to create my "clean and layered" (I think that is where this fits) card.  I also used the sketch from My Favorite Things.

I did take some liberties with the sketch but the basic design is there.  That is what I love about sketches, they are a starting off point for your design.  The reindeer from Starry Christmas is stamped in versamark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
