Rudolph Day

Hi everyone, I was very lucky to be invited as guest DT over at the Rudolph Day challenge which is hosted by the fabulous Maureen of Scraps of Life by Scrappymo. The 'anything goes christmas' challenges start on the 25th and close on the last day of each month and there is a fabulous prize to be won, so I hope you will head over to join in the fun as well as get a start on your christmas makes.

For my Rudolph card I used a Giordano decoupage sheet from Joanna Sheen, Bo Bunny paper and gold mirricard for matting. With the fabulous decoupage image I didn't think it needed any embellishments so just added a sentiment from my stash.





I shall enter this in the following challenges ~

Cute Card Thursday challenge 'in the round'
Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge 'christmas in July'
Hiding in My Craft Room challenge 'christmas in July'
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 'christmas + use a sentiment'
Country View challenge 'have fun with circles'





Thanks for taking the time to pop by and for all your greatly appreciated comments

This is so pretty with it's layers of decoupage. A real traditional Santa of my youth! I love all the layers and the pretty paper you used.
The mirri card mat gives it that touch of shimmer...perfect for any Christmas card!
