Nordic Rudolph

There is a new Christmas Challenge just started  called  Christmas Kickstart  Challenge and as I short changed myself at the weekend (only managing to make 5 cards) I thought I would make one to enter, especially as the theme is Rudolph and I had just the stamp I wanted to use.  Mind you it has only  taken me 2 days to make as I decided to fussy cut the image out after I had coloured it in!!

Stamp is by Crafter's Companion called 'Nordic Christmas Cheer.' The embossing folder is also by Crafter's Companion and called 'Reindeer Parade'. I stamped the image out onto watercolour card and coloured using my promarkers. Fussy cut and then added the gold glitter glue and the gold sticker stars on his saddle.  Christmas sentiment was from my stash which I had bought at the NEC last year. Button and glitter thread just happened to be out on my desk so I used them here. Well rude not to and saved me having to put away. 

Entering into the following challenges:
Christmas KickStart Challenge #1 Rudolph and friends.
Sweet Stampin Christmas # Anything goes.
Merry Little Christmas #6 Anything goes.
