MMSC75 Filigree Reindeer/ Soaring

Anyone know what time it is!?!? LOL!  It is Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge time - can you believe this is sketch 75 - skeery!  LOL!

For something different I have made a Christmas Card - using Layers of Color Reindeer Waltz art stamps....how could I resist when I was given this fabulous Basic Grey DP - it could not be more perfect for these art stamps!

I have embossed this divine reindeer with SU Gold Embossing Powder - I love the way it has turned out - so elegant!

Gold thread and has been attached and a snowflake fastened with a gem to keep it all in place (lets hope it works! LOL!)

My next card is created using Priscillas divine dragonfly - how can I resist this image!  I cannot use it enough!

I have coloured it with SU Chalks and cut out a second set of wings and popped them up on foam tape.  You can see the dimension below along with the detail on the wings.

 I have used some SU offcuts from my friend Ann - she keeps me in supply with all of her scraps - it does go to show that 'one man junk IS one man's treasure!!'  Thanks Ann!!
