Reindeer Sketch

There is a cool sketch right now, designed by Gina K, on the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge blog.

So in honor of Gina developing the sketch I had to use Gina's stamps. This is a set from Gina K called Christmas Blessings designed by Asela Hopkins. These wooden reindeer sold me on it right away, although this was the first opportunity I'd had to use them! Another blog encouraged stampers to cut through images if need be, so to fit the sketch I boldly cut off part of the reindeer. Hope it didn't hurt. He is made of wood.

I don't know who made the DP, the green background is SU True Thyme, and you'd almost never guess it because the DP has such strong green/brown tones. Colored the reindeer with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Ribbon and sentiment is from PTI, sentiment from the Believe set. Thanks for looking!

Great coloring and love the reindeer too...they are so cute and I'm sure it didn't hurt to cut the one's tail off. Great card, PS.
