Sketchy Week for Jingle Belles!

Hello there! We are on WEEK 5 at Jingle Belles. And this week, our challenge was to follow a sketch. I'm not usually fond of sketches, but this week was a super cool, super simple one by Amy.  It allowed me to use lots more of my stash... FYI... this week everything is from my stash!

Here's the finished card:
(please forgive the bending of the card... I still need to lay it flat!
Glimmer Mist can do that...)

I Glimmer-misted the whole card in English Ivy (love! how the Glimmer Mist makes the white space look like a misted-green sky with greenish stars...), added some gold ribbon from my stash (circa 1991... yes, I've been "collecting" that long!). It needed to be cut in half, as it was much too wide for my card. I mitered the edges of the ribbon and glued it on down with my trusty ATG (I still love that thing!). Then, I stuck on part of a red star garland (from the stash again...) with some mini Glue Dots (I love those, too!).
See that reindeer? I have no clue where he came from, but there he was... in my stash... complete with red fiber and bell. He got stuck on with some mini Glue Dots, too. Then I Xmas Red Stickled a semi-frame to add a little more color and... VOILA! There ya have it!

Thanks, Amy and the Jingle Belles! I'm so lovin' these challenges.
