Jingle Belles - with a sketch from Allison!

I've been meaning to play along over at jingle belles for ages, but I am a last-minute Lucy for Christmas cards as well as everything else, and only now am I really getting into the Christmas craft craze. This sketch from Allison (and indeed, the pink & green colour scheme of it!) were the starting point for my card.

Supplies: papers, tags, from Kaisercraft;
snowflake sticker from stash;
Martha Stewart pink rhinestones;
Sakura Clear Glaze pen on sentiment & reindeer's nose
I couldn't get a good photo of the slight gloss added with the Sakura glaze pen - it's very subtle - on the reindeer's nose and on the pink sentiment. Pink & lime green is one of my favourite Christmas colour combinations!
See you later on today....I promise!
xoxo,
Jessi

Very cool stuff my deer. Love his deer in the headlights expression (Get it? Geez, I crack myself up. I could do this all day. Someone needs to feed me coffee! lol)

I'm really getting into the non-traditional colors this year too! Especially the pinks and blues!
