Challenge #29

We are adding beads to our card for Bah!Humbug! this week, and a reindeer for CHNC. I used a clear stamp (not sure where from) that was part of a Christmas collection for the reindeer and snow. I inked only the reindeer and stamped it directly onto the white card base. I then used Martha Stewart glue to ink the snowflakes only of the same stamp and stamped that on top of the reindeer. I quickly added Martha Stewart's clear micro beads to the glue stamped card. (My daughter suggested, after I had made a big mess and had beads all over me, the table, and the floor, that I put the card in a box top before pouring beads on it. I could have used the suggestion before I made the mess - oh well, live and learn). I stamped the sentiment from the same collection and added a punched side using a Martha Stewart punch. Black satin ribbon was woven through the punched side as a finishing touch. Very simple, but I like the subtle shimmer from the beads. I hope you like it, as well. Thanks for looking.
