I'm having a bit of a challenge day... can I combine a few challenges into one card? That would be a yes! So I have a sketch challenge, a colour challenge, a couple of 'anything goes' challenges and a specific element challenge (Christmas and Reindeer), here we go...
A white scalloped card base with a couple of patterned mats, the blue (x2 on the bottom) is from a stack by MY MIND'S EYE called 'Blink Of An Eye', the brown patterned mat (top) is from CRATE PAPER called 'Portrait Collection'. I have used my CRICUT Expression to cut the shaped mat using the 'Elegant Edges' cartridge p.39 'oblong' feature key <Swirl2> in cream and the brown layer is cut using the 'shadow' feature key <Swirl2-s> all cut at 3 1/4".
The CRICUT was also used to cut out the reindeer, it is from the 'Paper Doll Dress Up' cartridge p. 74 ('accessories 3' feature key <elf-s>) and is cut at 3 1/4". I have used a white gel pen to colour in his hooves and to make some highlights.
This sentiment was computer generated and mounted onto some brown CS to match the first base mat. With a few red gems and some ribbon et voila!
