Trying to Keep Up with Christmas Cards

I'm doing my best to keep up with one Christmas card per week and when I saw this week's Mojo sketch, Mojo143,  I knew just the image I wanted to use.

I stamped Reindeer Circle from Stamping Bella with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper then coloured it with copics. I added sparkle with a couple of Spica glitter pens then punched out the image with my 2" circle punch.

The patterned papers are retired SU Ski Slope and I chose them because there's chocolate in the papers so I knew it would coordinate nicely with my reindeer. I stamped the sentiment then stitched the blue patterned paper to a chocolate chip layer and added the ribbon and red panels. The image is popped on foam tape and finished with three ruby red Bonbons.

The next Bellarific Friday challenge is June 25th and it's a sketch...Jodibella created this beauty for us. To play along simply create a card using Stamping Bella images and this sketch then email a picture of it to Em by Thursday June 24th to be included in the Friday round-up on Bloggabella. You just might win some Bella Bucks for participating!

Thanks for stopping by!

Way to go creating Christmas cards so early. (I might suggest 3 small snowflakes on your panels to go with your background paper.) Hope you don't mind the suggestion.
It's a really cute card as is though. Love the 3 Red Dew Drops.
