Utah Divas International - Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday Friends!
This is the Sketch we were given from Carol for this weeks Utah Divas International Sketch Challenge.  I looked at this several times before an idea came to my mind.  I looked at it horizontally as opposed to Vertically.

Here is what I came up with !

I chose the traditional Real Red Card Stock for the base of the card. As I knew I would be using the Christmas Cocoa Speciality Designer Paper (Item # 116770) it was easy to pick Soft Suede as the coordinating color.  Dasher (Item # 116816) was a great choice for this particular sketch.  I stamped 'him' using Soft Suede Classic Ink on Whisper White Card Stock.  It is hard to tell on the picture, but I used the 2-Way Glue pen and the Dazzlin' Diamonds on his antlers.  I gave him a Rudolph red nose using the Real Red Stampin' Write Marker.  I added a Chocolate Chip corduroy button to finish the sketch.

I love the Big Shot.  I used the Perfect Details Texturz Plate on the Soft Suede Card Stock.  It added dimension and was a perfect match for the Dasher Stamp Set.

Dasher $8.95
