Snowman & Reindeer

Hi Everyone, my post today is for the Outlawz sketch challenge, I used an image that I have had since 2005, I still go back to these images, but not as I should as they are still great.

Anyhow, I followed the sketch, but kept it a little CAS this time. just adding the frame and gold card and ribbon with the red card. I added Sheena Douglas Sparkle Pens onto the lights and the heart and the bells on the image and extended the base of the snowman in PS. If you think there is an addition in the corner different to the sketch, YEP! you are right, I was just moving the card out of the way and realised I had dripped 2 drops of the sparkle pens onto the corner duh! well I had done too much to put it into the bin, so a matching holly corner and it was OK. I think so anyway. LOL I also added some of the pens onto the holly leaves. The frame and the holly were cut on the Silhouette Cameo.

The image is adorable, and the snow underfoot looks quite 'real' - adds lots of texture. Love circle design with the 2 cuties, and the sparkle and color you've got going on. Great use of an 'oldie' image in your capable hands! TFS & Hope all has been well. Will try to catch up soon! Have a great Sunday, and Hugs.

I saw this at The Outlawz and left you a comment there but today I'm browsing your blog and catching up on what I've missed so want to let you know that I still love the little die cuts, regardless of the reason for using them. The definitely set off that sweet image, my friend!

That really is a wonderful image - and a fabulous save with the holly! I've had many a strategically-placed embellishment for similar reasons! Your holly looks as though it was meant to be there!!
