Flourishes Challenge FTTC42 and FTTC43

I forgot to post last weeks Flourishes Challenge FTTC42...and here it is. I posted it on SCS and forgot to post it here. I used a Flourished Christmas Reindeer image and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I colored him with Encore Gold Ink and a sponge. I used gold beads on the antlers and his nose. SU's Chunky White Glitter for the snow, CuttleBug's Snow Emossing Folder on White Shimmery Paper and Gold Paper and Sparkle White from my stash. The Snowflakes are from Spellbinders Snowflake Dies. Also MS Snowflake Border Punch, Blue Swarovski Crystals on the snowflake and his ey, Nesties Rectangle Die under the Noel! Click to see this pic better.


Hi to all! I really hope that you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving! Mine was extremely special in so many ways. I am blessed with the most wonderful family and friends. You know, there are not a lot of people that can say those words and for it to be "really" true! ...For me it is too true!
We had a fabulous weekend and it is not over yet. My sister, long-time friend and I are going to see the movie "New Moon" tomorrow. I do not know if many of you have read the Twighlight Series...but the three of us are big time fans. So I still have that to look forward to. Also went shopping today at Michael's and Hobby Lobby...need I say more??? Oh my word did I ever get some 'sweet' deals...spent too much, but hey...it's for me!!

This card I am posting is for the Flourishes FTTC43 Challenge. It is a simple card, easy peasy to make...using the Spellbinders Poinsettia Dies, Sheer Red Ribbon from Flourishes, SSU's Real Red Cardstock, Red Velvet Paper and Candy Cane Striped Paper from Hobby Lobby, and Rhinestones....see, easy as pie .

Thanks guys for stopping by...be safe coming home from the holidays and I really hope you enjoy my little creation!
