Wee with Reindeer

I've had a play with some of my other new birthday goodies...and it's the papers that are new on tooday's card...they're from the 'Christmas in the Country' pad by Papermania. The image is 'Wee with Reindeer' by Whiff of Joy...which I coloured using watercolour pencils, adding some Stitckles to the 'snowy' ground. The snowflake was cut using my Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' die...then coated with Glamour Dust...with a button threaded with twine in the centre. I distressed all of the edges, and added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the border, and the 'airmail' twine is from the Ribbon Girls.

Love this Helen.
I have used this Wee image lots in the past, it was one of the first ever Christmas stamps I bought, it's ages since I have used it (not at all last Christmas) must get it out again after seeing how gorgeous you have used him. Debbiex
