An Elegant Reindeer... 45

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, November 9, 2010 @ 11:00 PM | ,

Hi There! I hope you all have had a great start to your week! I have had a few long work days back to back so not much time to play. sigh... I had some time this evening to play with my papercrafting goodies :)
I inked up the gorgeous reindeer image from Taylored Expressions Sparkle & Cheer. After stamping this majestic looking image, I adhered a few pearls for a little extra elegance. For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #133.

Sparkle & Cheer contains quite a variety of images and sentiments that can be so easily mixed and matched. To create the lil' tag shown in the photo below, I inked up the Sparkle & CHEER sentiment then using a S4-246 Labels Eleven die template to cut/emboss the image.
That's all I have for today - thank you for looking! Have a great day & Be Sweet :)
