Holly Jolly Rudolph

I finally had time to begin the Holiday Boot Camp – mercifully, all videos are available for “replay” so you do not have to keep up but can work at your own speed.  As always, I love all the ideas that Jennifer and Kristina share (along with the talented guests). 
This card is made using a sketch provided in the class, and I knew which of my stamps I had to use first.  Amy at used the same little Rudolph - and I adored her card – enough to have a little shopping frenzy. 
Rudolph is colored with Copics, and I added glossy accents for a shiny nose.  To speed things along, I cut the bulbs out of glitter cardstock and just used a little liquid adhesive to hold them in place.  My thought while coloring was that I possibly have no idea what a real reindeer looks like, much less its coloring – so I apologize to the animal experts out there (or reindeer experts) for my shoddy knowledge.
