Let's Play Some Reindeer Games

Let me introduce you to this cute little reindeer! Meet Prancer. He's this week's featured image, at Shelly's Images. Isn't he awesome?! What's even more awesome, is that he is on sale for a special price, today only, in the Shelly's Images store. Prance on over there and get him for yourself, and while you're there, check out the other fabulous images Shelly has to offer.

I wanted to try something different, this time. I seen a couple of challenges for "All white, except color on your image." I hadn't ever tried anything like it before, and the idea intrigued me, so I sat down and started creating, and this is what I came up with. I wasn't sure I'd like the concept, but I have to admit that I'm really liking how it came out. I used the sketches at Fussy and Fancy, Hanna and Friends, Fairymoon, and Inktegrity, for my card layout. This card also fits the sketch at Sarah Hurley. The background is embossed with stripes. The center snowflakes are felt snowflake ribbon. I colored Prancer with Promarkers and matted him onto a paper lace doily, then attached it to the card. The corners of the card are glittered sticker paper that I recycled from an empty sheet of stickers. I used snowflake charms in the corners of the lace doily, then finished the card off by adding sparkle to the image and the lace doily, with crystal stickles.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
