Joy to the World...

Hello and happy Wednesday to you! Today I'd like to share a card that I'm entering for two challenges: Freshly Made sketch #61 and the Color Throwdown #218.

and the inside:

Here are the challenges:

This card was such a delight to make. The sketch was very simple and I just adore these colors! I've been trying to use my Slice die cutting machine more, and that reindeer was cut with it using the Noel cartridge. I like that this one has the layering effect so I could cut the antlers out using another color. Then I just stuck him on with some foam squares. Easy peasy!

Well, got to go give the fur baby some dinner now, then get ready to go out. Wednesday night is when I shoot pool on a ladies 8 ball league. Fun times ahead!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a great evening!
