Colour Challenge and sketch Challenge all rolled into one!

Hi there, today I have one card to share that I have made for two blog challenges!  Dawn McVey has her regular colour challenge on at the mo and the colours are really cute.  And there is also a new sketch at Get Sketchy. So I combined the two to make my card.  Thanks for the inspiration folks!


I turned the sketch on its side. I embossed snowflakes onto the chocolate brown cardstock. Of course to me no card is complete without stitching and a bit of sanding!  Rudolph and the sentiment are raised up on foam tape to give dimension and rudolph's nose was made from a bit of the rust coloured paper with dimensional magic and a bit of glitter sprinkled on top.  The bonus challenge from Get Sketchy was to make a matching envelope, which I made from scraps.


Here is a close up of Rudolph with his scarf on!  The scarf was a bit of an after thought, but I'm glad I added it now, otherwise he might have looked a bit bare and just floating there.

I decided to actually do the colour challenge when I spotted the Rudolph ribbon in my local craft shop, it was too close a match to the colours to pass up!

Thanks for looking! :)
