You And Your Herd

It's October already and that means we have a New Release called Fall/Winter Fun at High Hopes Rubber Stamps AND it means a new challenge here at One Crazy Stamper! 

If you haven't taken a look at this new release you will definitely want to! It is full of fun new winter/fall images. 

For the challenge we also have a sketch for you to play along with. I have used the sketch for my card. I am happy to introduce you to "Decorating With Charlie" - how fun is he!?! He makes me smile! and the new sentiment "You And Your Herd". 

I had a hard time not giggling as I coloured this stamp - I don't know why but Charlie brings that out in me. Maybe it's because he brings back fond childhood memories from being on my friends' farms. 

I coloured Charlie and his mouse friend with alcohol markers and cut them out with a stitched rectangle die. It is hard to tell in the picture but the tree and grass are coloured with a green sparkle pen on them as well as clear sparkle pen on the bell and ornament. I cut my paper from the I Love Christmas Collection (Echo Park) and added them to some red and tan cardstock. 
I had a wood snowflake in my stash so I used a Silver Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle to match the bell. The sentiment is stamped and cut out with a fish tail banner die. Gingham ribbon from Celebrate It finish off my card.
