The girl with antlers

I've been dying to make something with this image since Lizzy first brought it out but have only just found time - BUT - in time for Christmas :D

She's from Oddball Art, image no 257, you can get her and any of Lizzy's other images with a 10% discount if you use my discount code at checkout DTANDREA10

I've used ProMarkers to colour this one as I can achieve very soft pastel colours with them.  Once coloured I then went blank - LOL!

On one of my drives home from work I started to get an idea so when I got home I fussy cut her out ready to mount onto the card.
I wanted to make a very girly pink Christmas card so I picked some papers from Maja Designs.  The gems are from Scrap Berry's and are actually a pale brown.

The sleigh and reindeers are dress it up buttons that she's gazing up at.  This reminds me of when I was a little girl I swore I'd seen Santa's sleigh in the sky above me :D  Ahh...  the imagination of a child!

The sentiment the image is mounted over is from a Lili of the Valley Art pad and is coloured with ProMarkers.

The Merry Christmas sentiment is a chip board one from Hobby Craft that I've left in its original state as I thought i blended in but also stood out from the background.

The pink and white flowers were a final additional - another idea I had driving home from work :D
These are hortensias from Live and Love Crafts which is where you can also get the paper.

We're nearly there folks - it's beginning to look a lit like Christmas
