Merry Monday Sparkles with Dasher

It's Merry Monday time again and we're almost through the year. Woosh!


As always, Lesley has given us a fantastic challenge!


I used my favorite Christmas animal stamp.  Dasher Rudolph is prancing on this card.  The shine doesn't show well in the photo, but he is embossed and the red rhinestone on his nose and the snowflake really shine IRL.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Dasher, Petite Pairs
Ink:  Encore Silver, Island Indigo
Paper:  Island Indigo, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Other:  Silver EP, Stylish Stripes EF, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Snowflake Punch (Martha Stewart), Basic Rinestones, Island Indigo Baker's Twine

I hope you'll find time in this busy week to share a card with us at Merry Monday.  If you've already sent your cards, you can get a head start on next year.

Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy!

"Rudy" looks very spruce with that red nose, most elegant with those graceful and sparkly antlers too. As always you make this teal & white combo your own, and picked the perfect EF for Rudy to prance upon. TFS & Merry Christmas.
