I'm on a roll ...


I'm posting another "Waltzing Reindeer" card today.  I just love these little guys.
I stenciled the background on this one using Belle Brocade art stencil from Layers of Color.
Ink : Momento Bamboo Leaves and Rhubarb Stalk
Spellbinders - Labels 2
Cuttlebug embossing folder Swiss dots ??
ticket sentiment - My Minds Eye Holly Jolly Christmas
stick pins, pearl brad in center of bow and leaves- Making Memories
brown glitter - Martha Stewart brownstone applied using 2-Way liquid glue pen

So I have been looking for inspiration in other departments in the craft store, baking, sewing, wedding.  And I noticed the pearl sprays in the wedding section and decided to give making my own a try.  I ued 24gauge wire and pearl beads from the craft department.

I'm off to work this morning.  Hoping to feel like getting another one done when I get home!
