Dashed off Dasher

In 20 minutes would you believe! From conception to finish - a bit of a change from the way I have been lately.  Anyway.......decided to enter the challenge at CR84FN:  #38 - pink, grey and black. Found a scrap of pink Christmas paper from Bo Bunny in the stash, and a piece of grey card embossed with an embossing folder from Provo Craft, and away I went.  



I decided to use the embossed card as a frame for a mounted section, so embossed the black and then cut it out, before wet embossing the SU stamp Dasher with white EP.  I added some bling, ribbon and a silver sparkly foam star, and mounting it on the pink DP and then onto a black card base. Done.

Love a card that comes together effortlessly with a few scraps and bits and pieces. So are you going to make these your Christmas cards for the season? I've got to get to work on a shoe box swap and a lovely simple design like this would work perfectly. Love the blinged up antlers!
