Charmed at Cute Card Thursday

Hello friends!  I thank you all so much for your latest comments on my posts, I do read them all and appreciate what you have to say.  🙂

It is Thursday once again and there is a new challenge issued over at Cute Card Thursday which is “Charms“.  You can never have too many charms, right?  So pull one out and use it to enter a project with us this week!  We would love to see what you come up with!

We are sponsored again by the lovely All Dressed Up Stamps and here’s what I’ve made for my card this week:

I saw this sweet little image and knew I needed to put it on a card! 🙂  I have used this adorable ADU Christmas Deer image for my design today.

My card size is a 5×5 square design.  I have used a stitched square die to cut some snowflake papers from my stash to mount onto a navy piece of card stock which I then placed over a white top folding card base.  Before placing it down, I added the white ribbon around it with the bow.

As you can see the ribbon is where I have the snowflake charm attached.  I’ve attached it with some silver thread which I’ve also used in a ‘nest’ form behind my circle image panel.  I thought it would be cute to take the silver ribbon not only for the center of my white bow, but another bow around the deer’s neck.  I die cut some snowflakes with glitter paper for accents and then added some glass enamel dots to the centers.  For the circle image panel, I colored the image and cut it out with a circle die and then cut a stitched scallop circle in navy to place behind it and then popped that up with some craft foam.

Here’s a closer view of the intricate coloring details on the deer.  I left his antelors plain and just colored in around them.  I used white and red gel pen for the dots.  I also took a silver glitter pen to add more dots around the snowflakes.

On the bottom of the circle I’ve attached some faux snow glitter flakes for the deer to stand on.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today and please be sure to check out the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog for more inspiration from the design team!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I will have another fun post to share with you tomorrow!  🙂
