Dashing Through The Snow!

Happy Thursday, everyone! It's hot and humid outside but I'm feeling all cool and Christmasy today! I hope you will stop by later this month for the Christmas in July Blog Hop hosted by Elaine of Expressions by Elaine from July 22-24! I will have blog candy to give away! For my project today, I have a Christmas card to enter into a couple of challenges.
The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye. I used Winter Wonderland to cut the jumping deer at 3". I ran him through the Cuttlebug with Swiss dots and then brushed Walnut Stain distress ink over the dots. The snowflakes are from the Christmas seasonal cart and I used my iRock to attach crystals. I used my Gypsy and Gypsy Font for the letters, welding the shadows together. I spritzed the letters with Frost shimmer spray from Tsukineko to make them glitter like a fresh dusting of snow.

I am entering the card in the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day :)

Blogger just hiccupped on my comment. Had commented that I especially like the colors used and the embellishments on the snowflakes on your wonderful Reindeer Christmas card.
