Feature a creature

It was my turn to choose the theme for today's Christmas Card Club challenge, so I chose 'feature a creature' - any, big or small - insects, birds, animals ... anything that can be classed as a 'creature'.

This gave me an opportunity to use one of my favourite Christmas stamps by Inkadinkado, inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail silver embossing. The background card is some left over from a Kanban kit that I bought long ago, mounted on to a sparkly stardream blue card blank. I cute the reindeer out with a nestie. I used an Anna Griffin greeting stamp, once again inked with versamark and heat embossed, cutting this out with a Die-namic fishtail die (I am so glad that I bought this set - so useful). I added a piece of Paper Cellar silver glitter strip and some My Mind's Eye all is bright gems.

The card for the reindeer and the greeting was from my scraps box.

The card is based on the sketch given for this week's Merry Monday on Always playing with paper (although I did deviate a bit):

Colours are for Soartful May challenge: night skies - dark blue, white, silver etc
