Reindeer Games

The challenge at Just Us Girls is stripes.  I love stripes!  They can be fun and playful, classy and elegant, masculine, bold, delicate... well, you get the idea.  I have a lot of DSP with stripes but opted to go with thin strips of card stock to create my own stripes.  I randomly placed the strips along the right of the card and included embossed diagonal stripes as the base for the reindeer.  I liked the combination of stripes and how the swirls on the reindeer softened things up a bit.  I added a red bow to the reindeer to balance the red stripes and bring a little color to the other side of the card.  Just for fun, I added a rhinestone to the bow.



Happy Stamping,
Dana
