Merry and Bright Reindeer

Hello, everyone!  Today I am sharing a holiday card featuring a gorgeous image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps called Snowflake Reindeer Silhouette.  I printed the image in grey and die-cut with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Oval.

The sentiment is from Desert Diva and it was a freebie at one point (thank you!).  I saw a fun sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches and wanted to give it a try:

I embossed the background with Darice Snowflakes and cut into pieces according to the sketch. Lastly I added a silver bow.

I'm joining Day 5 of Catch the Bug's Christmas Chaos.  I chose the theme "Homemade Holiday Chocolates - Use ONLY cardstock, no designer papers, Embossing & 2 Layers", and it is also supposed to be funny.  I don't have a lot of funny images or sentiments for Christmas, so for the sentiment I went with Merry and Bright, which is fun-loving, so I hope it counts!

Speaking of fun-loving, my little elf Eli decided to buddy up to Kiwi today.  Here he has joined Kiwi in his cardboard box.  Kiwi is uninterested, so I guess Eli will have to find another buddy, so stay tuned! We are linking up over at DL.ART's Third Annual Elf Antics Linky! If you have a little elf, you will want to join Eli, Arci, Ron, Daisy, Elizabeth, Loopy, Elfin, and Hope in their funny elf antics too!
