Santas Sleigh with Freshly Made

I finally dragged myself in from the snow to play along with the Freshly Made Sketch challenge for this week.....well, that and my football team lost to my husbands fav team today. Its amazing how much stamping I can get done when I am ticked off, LOL.

I saw this sketch and knew I wanted to use Wandering Words. I sat down at my desk, grabbed the stamp and turned on the Hallmark Channel and guess what was on...The Santa Clause...a definite sign that I picked the right stamp to work with :0)

I really love the way the card came out but I hate the way it photographed. I sponged the edges of the Whisper White in Metallic Silver so the transition between the Brushed Silver and Whisper White isnt as severe as it appears in the photo. I also added some rhinestones...they are the sparkly stars that guide Santa and the reindeer along their route :)

I also eliminated one of the layers on the sketch...with this long image across the middle a layer underneath it just didnt look right. I hope thats ok!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Wandering Words
Paper: Night of Navy, Whisper White, Brushed Silver
Ink: Night of Navy, Metallic Silver
Accessories: Rhinestones, Snow Burst Embossing Folder, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, sponge
