Happy Sunday!  I am popping in with a Christmas card to share.  I am playing along with a few blog challenges.

I am playing along with PTI Make It Monday Challenge.  We are faux gilding this week.  I am also playing along with TGIF Challenge, and Stamp, Ink, and Paper Challenge.

For my card I started with a piece of the Poinsettia and Pine Pattern Paper Collection.  I stamped the text image from Dash Away All stamp set using soft stone an aqua mist ink to the center of the panel.  

I die cut and stamped using the Dash Away All die and the same Dash Away All stamp set using cocoa bean ink.  I stamped again with versamark and sprinkled on some gold embossing powder, blue embossing powder, and kaleidescope embossing powder. I heat emboss to give me a faux gilded reindeer.

I love the color combination blend as well as the texture. I added some loose threading and foam tape behind the reindeer and added him to the center of the panel. 

I added some foam tape to the back of the panel and added it to a top folding pinefeather card stock base.  I finished the card with a a few clear sequins.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
