Greetings of the Season

I'm on a roll, and back with another Christmas card.  You know how much I love sketch challenges, so when I saw today's Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch I decided to play along.  Here is the sketch:

and here is my take on it:

I used  Reindeer circle for my image.  It was stamped on bella's bestest paper and coloured with prismacolour pencils then blended with gamsol.  I freehand cut the circle out then layered it onto a piece of green c/s cut using a spellbinder scallop circle, then layered that onto a piece of kraft c/s cut using one of my new dies called Asian Accents.  Other dies used are MFT Mini Monarch border and the snowflake flourish is from Memory Box.

Designer Paper is by Echo Park called Season's Greetings.  The sketch didn't call for a sentiment, but it looked kind of bare below so I added 'greetings of the season".

Finished off with some glitter and some glossy accents on the berries.

Thanks for coming by for a visit, see you again real soon.
Till next time.....

LOL I just snagged this sketch myself to use on a project this week. It's great and I love the reindeer you've used on your take. Great shading in your coloring and the papers are beautiful. Hugs!

One of my all time favorite holiday images and you've colored it beautifully! I can almost feel the soft fuzzy facial hair. Love the olive, red, kraft combo too!
