Pink Reindeer

I've been trying for days to come up with a reindeer card for the One Layer Christmas Card Challenge.  Then today I saw Merry Monday also wants a reindeer & I came across this adorable one by Hero Arts in my collection. The Share Handmade Kindness Card Shower is an option for Week 3 of the challenge. It includes cards for 6 yr old Emily who loves dark pink--a girl after my own heart!  I began by masking an area & blending Distress Ink picked raspberry & ripe persimmon. The little deer was then stamped in Versafine & so was the Technique Tuesday sentiment. The little star is included in the TT set & I stamped it in ripe persimmon.  Stickles make for a sparkly, feminine little reindeer that will hopefully make Emily smile.  Might have to make more cards with this layout--nice & flat for mailing.  Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
Edited to add: Also entering the one layer Christmas card challenge at a2z Scrapbooking.
