Flying High

Here is my entry in the Midnight Madness sketch challenge. We needed to use the sketch and make a Christmas card with something that fly's. Because I wanted to use one of the new Simple Doodles images I chose to use Rudolf the Red nosed reindeer for my something that fly's.
I sanded my base cardstock and tore the next layer to give it an antique look. Also inked the striped layer for the same reason. The moon was punched with my marvy scalloped punch and the cloud was had cut then covered with glitter. Rudolf was colored with my essential pens, colored pencils and gel pens and attached with pop dots. Tiny sparkly gems were added to the top and bottom of the striped paper. Hope you like my card, Janet


  1. Rudolph the reindeer just makes this card! Love all of your texture and techniques. Thanks so much for joining us this week at MMSC!

  2. Hi Janet, your card is adorable. When I use to do SU, we would always demo the torn edge effect. I forgot all about that.. It really does look cool and I think I may have to start doing that in my work again :) Well done with the sketch and theme this week :) Oh, If you have not done so already, be sure to get in on our HUGE giveaway we are giving right now for the 12 Blogs of Christmas.
