HIMCR Challenge # 123 - Super Scraps Saturday

Happy Saturday all!  Today's challenge at Hiding in My Craft Room is # 123 - Super Scraps Saturday.  Our sponsor for today's challenge is Scrapbook Stamp Society.  They have very sweet and cute digi images on their website, you need to go take a peek and see for yourselves. You'll love them all!

For my card, I'm using the Christmas Bestie Image A4 digi stamp by Sherri Baldy. This lil girl looks so cute in her winter outfit with her little reindeer.  I almost put a drop of stickles on his nose and turned him into Rudolph, but, with great effort, I restrained myself :-)

I coloured the image with copic markers and added Dazzling Diamonds from SU! to her accessories making her look very sparkly and dazzling :-)
I used a Metallic Gold Gelly Roll pen to colour in all the little bells on the reindeer.  The die that I used to showcase the image is the Decorative Labels 8 from Spellbinders.  To emboss the white mat, I used the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder.
To finish off the card I added little poinsettia flowers and three little gold gems (that you can't see very well on this picture) placed on each corner to complement the flowers. 

For the inside I used the same spellbinders die. The stamp for the sentiment is called Christmas Peace by Paper Inspirations.
Not really a 30 minute card, only because I take so long to colour, but as you can see it was a very simple card to make and I think it came out pretty and festive.
So what are you going to make to link up to join our fun challenge?  I can't wait to see your beautiful projects.  Remember, it can be any theme and any project as long as you use scraps.  As you can see from my card, I used my larger scraps this time around.  My scraps drawers were getting too full so I held my breath and threw out anything that was smaller than a 4" x 4" or 3" x 5" piece.  What's left is much more manageable now.
Oops, I almost forgot to give you the link to where all the fun is happening ... so here it is ...
Have a wonderful weekend.
