Merry Circles for Merry Monday

This week at the Merry Monday sketch is all about circles. I ended up making 2 cards for it. They both use the same DSP but on one card I utilized stamped images and the other one is strictly DSP.

The first card I used the reindeer from the retired set Holiday Lineup. The faces on these guys just crack me up! The circles from the sketch made me think of the spotlighting technique so I kind of had that in mind when making this card with these images.. I used Xmas Red Stickles to give the middle reindeer a bright and happy nose! The center circle is popped up with dimensionals, as are the 2 circles behind it.
Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Holiday Lineup(retired), Seasons Greetings(retired)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Merry Moments DSP
Ink: Black StazOn, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Garden Green
Accessories: Xmas Red Stickles, dimensionals, sponge, various SU circle punches

My 2nd card focused on the snowflakes from the DSP. I used different circle punches to highlight the various snowflakes. Like the first card the largest circle and the 2 behind it are popped up for dimension. I thought the bottom half of the card looked a little plain so I drew in some stitching along the edges and Chocolate Chip candy dots
Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: More Merry Messages
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Merry Moments DSP
Ink: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Candy Dots, sponge, dimensionals, various SU circle punches

Also, I didn't get the card done in time, but I did use last weeks Merry Monday sketch for a card, HERE.
